I finally dusted off my camera and took some pictures of the baby quilt that I finished last week.
It began as a panel, called "A Beautiful Day", designed by Jacqueline Steves. I decided to make it a bit larger, so I added two borders. The small lime green border was made from a fat quarter - the only matching green that I could find in my stash. The final border and binding was made from fabric that I bought from Connecting Threads - the colour was perfect, and the swirls in the fabric echoed the swirls in the panel design triangle border.
I outlined the centre panel, using monofilament (invisible) thread. I decided to outline all the designs, and not add any extra quilting, as the design is cute and busy. I stitched flowers and leaves with curlicues in the plain pink area, wiggles in the lime green and curls in the final orange/gold border.
This quilt will be donated to our local hospital by my community quilts group at my guild.
Now back to my machine quilting. I have to take advantage of the time I have today, as we have company arriving again tomorrow!
