Since January, I've been teaching a sewing class at my local library and this summer we did a Quilting 101 series where I taught three installments for learning how to quilt. Last week was the last class and we did binding. The students learned how to buy fabrics, sew a 1/4 seam, baste a quilt, quilting using a walking foot and trying out free motion, and then finally cutting and applying the binding. It was great seeing everyone's excitement with a finished quilt! Hopefully I spread the quilting bug a little!
I, too, made a quilt as a demonstration quilt and I am so happy to have it finished. It's so hard to put something away for a month especially when all it needed was binding...haha!
I didn't have any one in mind for this quilt when I made it and since it's baby size, I thought I would give selling a try. This is my first quilt to sell and might be my last. I would consider it gender neutral with just enough of every color to make any new mother happy.
I used two charm packs for the quilt, one being Summerville by Lucie Summer for Moda and then a coordinating solids charm pack. The back is a turquoise print from the Summerville line and the binding is Sketch in Cherry by Timeless Treasures. The quilt measures 35 x 40 inches (prewashed).
Quilting is a done in a wavy vertical pattern using Gutermann thread in natural and the binding is attached by machine for durability. I absolutely love this quilt and would keep it if it was a tad bit bigger.
Thanks for visiting and wish me luck!
