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 😦

White Baby Quilt, WIP

I was left with a small stack of white and cream leftovers after the wedding quilt a few weeks ago.  I had some advice early on that I would have great success if I made white quilts for babies, I think I might have rolled my eyes. But I decided to use up the leftovers and throw in this lovely ducky fabric (that seems to match nothing else in the universe) and see what happens. The sad truth is I have baby quilts in 2 different stores and etsy right now, and none of them selling. So what harm would one more be, right?
