I have been dying to share this quilt with you for weeks now. I made it for a friend who is having a baby any day. I gave it to her last night, so I can finally share it without ruining the surprise. Wanna see?
It's a super modern triangle quilt! I am in love.
For the fabric, I chose Kona cotton in coral, two shades of that in-between-aqua-and-mint color, two shades of grey, white and navy. It's backed with a coral chevron and bound with grey polka dots.
I've decided that quilting is a lot like being pregnant. It takes forever, is done with lots of love, and can be painful at times.
I decided to try machine quilting this quilt using a walking foot and I had some puckering issues. I think that because one side of the triangle was always cut on the bias, some of the fabric pulled funny as I sewed things together. And I tried a new binding technique that I have not mastered. It's got flaws for sure. BUT it's oh, so cheery and it's got that heavy, divine feel that machine quilted quilts have. knowwhatimean? It's not perfect, but it is still beautiful.
