A new year, and one surely to be different than any I have lived so far in my seven completed decades.
Here is the first quilt: one for an expected grand nephew, made with a favorite panel from Wilmington Prints titled TO THE MOON.
I backed it with a Tasha Tudor woodland animal print and bound it with a 2 1/2" binding strip of batik. I had some blender fabric from Wilmington Prints and was able to add add 5" verical borders to the front panel and bring the overall size of the baby quilt to 35" x 45".
I free-motion quilted around the stars, owl, elephant and sheep, and had a lot of fun sewing circles to show the sheep's fleece.
I then used my walking foot to add border quilting with my favorite serpentine stitch to frame the panel center of the quilt, and used the same for the binding.
