It took working into the wee hours of the morning, but the Baby Life quilt is done! And with two days to spare! I may even whip up a matching pillow or some kind of accessory. What else could I make?
I prewashed the fabrics since two of the fabrics I ordered had a strong chemical smell. I usually don’t prewash, but may start after this! I also used the prewashed batting from my earlier experiment. I’m blown away by how soft the finished quilt is. I wish you could reach into the computer and feel the softness!
I quilted a loopy meander in the center of the quilt, with a row of double loops in the border. I was going to quilt the patchwork border with a wishbone design, but changed my mind at the last minute. I was tired and wanted to get to bed!
Now that it’s done I need to figure out a way to wrap it up. I was thinking a paper gift bag, but now I’m wondering if I should make a fabric gift bag. Maybe that could be the missing matching accessory. I do like making drawstring bags. They are so easy and quick to make.
