Quilt for #2

The fabric has been purchased, and I have a design sketched out in my head for #2's quilt. I decided to make a quilt for #2 first, because #1 has received many hand-made things whereas #2 has not. I don't dare make clothes or pajamas for #2 because he has very particular preferences at the moment.

All fabrics are Robert Kaufman (purchased at Fabric Depot). From left to right, the first three are Caleb Gray Studio's "Groove," the fourth is Vera's Garden, and the fifth and final is "New Traditions."

The second windmill baby quilt is done!

The second windmill quilt is finished and has been packed off for its intended recipient (who is due to arrive any day now). I think I already wrote about the details of this quilt in a previous post. The only piece of information to add is that the free-motion quilting was done with yellow, 100% cotton thread.

Here is a close up of the border and quilting.

I bound the quilt with the same Monaluna for Robert Kaufman fabric as I used for the border. The mitered corners turned out very nicely. As with the previous quilt, the border was firts machine-sewed on and then hand-stitched on the back with invisible stitches.

Next up for quilting is the zigzag quilt. This might be my favorite one yet...
