After what seems like ages, I finally finished this quilt (had to stop work for a while due to a torn rotator cuff…it’s hard to sew when your arm is in a sling!). I designed and made it for a college friend who is having a baby. I hope everyone enjoys the pictures. I’ll give some explanations (by picture number):
1: A view of the whole quilt. The hands at the top belong to my sister, who was kind enough to hold it up on the stipulation that her face not be included in the picture!
2 and 3: Close-ups of blocks. The butterflies were machine-appliqued and “stuffed” to create a trapunto effect.
4: A close-up of the border. It is hard to see, but I quilted a heart design all around the border of the quilt.
5: A view of the front laid over the back (the back was done in flannel). My sister’s kitten refused to move, so I had to photograph him along with the quilt!
I hope everyone enjoys!
