White Baby Quilt

dscf1503

After a few annoying days of thinking my sewing machine was broken, I changed the needle and vowed not to use the zig zag stich for a while. That will solve it! I managed to crank out another bento box quilt, I really do love this pattern, as evidenced by the 3 other quilts I made with it!

dscf15101I had every chance in the world to take a lot of great pictures of this quilt outside this weekend, but instead I took some mediocre pictures in natural sunlight and then some more mediocre pictures inside on the bed, which is why this quilt looks like it is a trapezoid. Which it isn’t, although I fear it is a little wonky-  The satin binding and I had some words and a few curses before we came to the end, where I swore I would never use it again. Which I have sworn before…

and some more minkee on back! I am forever grateful I figured out to put “heat -n-bond lite” between the batting and minkee. It makes quilting minkee so much easier. Now, if anyone has any tricks to make satin binding work better, I am all ears! Now for sale in my etsy shop, the first link on the right… Donated to a silent auction for Theatre Exile here in Philly. It sold- but they never told me how much it made them 😦

    • I loved it too, I had forgotten about it, that was a while ago. I still wish I knew what the winning bid was… they were probably saving my feelings by not telling me.
