Good Morning and hello again with next 3 weeks posting for the HQAL. At our last posting I was pleased to write that I had finally finished the Capital T Quilt.
I had an idea of what I wanted to work on next but instead, I decided to continue and finish a baby quilt I have been working on to welcome a grandson’s first baby girl. I have shown this project before but on my daily regular feed. The baby quilt is for a couple that is fun, funky, comic lovers, off the grid ~ is the best I can describe them ~ so I wanted the quilt to match their personality. The blocks are all hand pieced but I admit that I attached the sashing by machine due to time constraints.
Here we are now for this posting
I have been working daily hand quilting all of the blocks. In fact I am just finishing up the last block. I doubled up on the quilt batting, a cotton and synthetic blend and it really made the quilting pop!
The back looks fun and squishy, just what I wanted
I feel good I will have this completed on schedule for mailing off to Texas to welcome baby Kira on time.
