For my finish last week: NY Baby stroller quilt.
I had a few coins left over from this quilt, so I decided to whip up a stroller blankie sized quilt in the same theme. This one has a white background and the backing is the NYC fabric. It’s quite cute. This is the first quilt I have made this small and I think I like it. They are so fast to get done, nearly instant gratification, I like that. It’s for sale in my Etsy shop!! I received some great advice from a fellow Etsian and added straps to this quilt so Mom can secure it to the stroller so the little guy can’t kick it off. Great idea!
Sandwich of the week: Wonky Log Cabin
This is a gift for my friends who are getting married in September. I took inspiration from a throw on their registry and the general color scheme of their registry choices. I think this should go well with what they’ve already chosen for their home. I have to say though, wonky log cabins and I are not friends. I do like how each one is different and how they look when they are finished, it’s the piecing I can’t stand. I am a girl who loves chain piecing. The sew one side, iron, trim, sew next side, iron, trim, it just seems to take forever. I would prefer to sew a bunch, iron a bunch, trim not a bunch.
I’ve started to quilt this behemoth. It takes quite a wrangling to get this one situated in my little tiny machine. I am quilting vertical, very organic lines on this one. To get the fabric flowing through the machine I think it would be immensely helpful to have a walking foot. (Maybe it’s just an excuse to buy one.) Right now with the foot I have, the top tends to get a sort of ripply. I’m hoping that once it goes in the crinkle-o-matic no one will be able to tell.
