HQAL: Finishing Up a Baby Quilt :)

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.

    Love that squishiness! Kira will treasure this when she is older, but for now she’ll love laying and rolling in it! Such a fun baby quilt!
