(the avacado table cloth in the background is not doing these colors any favors)
I am calling this quilt Baby Blocks. It is aprox 42 x50 all washed up. The backing is MM Dainty Damask. I love this fabric! I got to use one of my new labels on this quilt, the first one!
I started this in November and got the top done but then stalled out with distraction from Christmas projects. I then got panicked because my last binding was icky and didn't want to move forward till I figures out how to improve that. I surfed around and read/watched all the binding tutorials I could find and picked up a couple different techniques. I ended up doing it almost exactly as demonstrated by Red Pepper Quilts tutorial and am very happy with it.
I am sharing this for Friday Sew & Tell. Be sure to head over there and check out all the other great projects people did this week.
What a great quilt...lucky baby!ReplyDelete
I love the colors!ReplyDelete
This is sew much fun! I love the colors and the binding is perfect for the blocks!ReplyDelete
Great Friday Finish!
Great colors! Even your label is cool. I am the WORST at binding. I had to put Old Red Barn's tutorial on my blog because I couldn't find it for hours one day. Grrr. Your binding looks fantastic. :)ReplyDelete
Wow, I love the colors with these simple blocks. Fantastic.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous blues and greens! And what a label! Love it!ReplyDelete
Adorable - I love those greens!!!
LUV the quilt Diane.ReplyDelete
How did you do your label? I have done mine in the past with stitch witch and ironed it on and then hand stitched around the label. I'm just curious.
I love this! I think I want to use this to make a fabric with my girl chirp fabric. Did you use a tutorial, a pattern, or did you just wing it?ReplyDelete
so beautiful! I love it. Love the backing & binding fabric you chose.ReplyDelete
I actually liked the avocado colour against the others:-)ReplyDelete
Lovely quilt, perfect machine made binding (I have to try that some time) and darling label. Did you have them printed out for you?
Pretty colors, love that backing!ReplyDelete

That is too cute! I'm so in love with white and (insert color here)quilts lately..ReplyDelete
There is something about blue and green that just make a quilt pop! Yours came out so pretty and worth the effort. Great job Diane!ReplyDelete
That is such a lovely quilt. How good is that machine binding that Rita did a tutortial on. It really gives a good finish.ReplyDelete
