I’ve shown some pictures of this in the quiltalong already, but here it is completely finished and washed!
It’s made from a charm pack that I got from @AIMR , she very generously sent me a ton of quilting supplies last year! Plus a white charm pack and about half a yard of white.
It was easy to piece, the only downside was having to press and square up all those HST’s! Some ended up too small, so I used those for the pinwheel blocks in the corners. A happy accident because I actually really like how those turned out.
I’m not a great quilter and using a domestic machine so I kept the quilting simple.
The backing was from the discount bin at the fabric store, it’s officially not a quilting fabric but I liked the print. It was a big “last on the bolt” piece, I still have about 2 yards left after this.
I was very concerned about the yellow fabric bleeding even though it was pre-washed, so I used several colour catchers, and they all came out white. So the recipient doesn’t have to worry about when they wash it - I don’t want to saddle new mums with items that need special care.
