baby quilt

Made as a baby gift for a co-worker.  I ended up making the top twice. I was not completely pleased with the color contrast when I finished the first top  so I decided to donate the top to Project Linus and made a second one for the baby gift.

I machine quilted it with variegated thread and pieced the binding from left over fabrics from the top.

The pattern is “Partial Shade” from the Spring 2004  issue of “Quiltmaker’s All-Time Favorites”

March was not a good sewing month, I only finished one project and that was the last few days of the month. 

I made this quilt as a baby gift for a friend’s granddaughter.  The pattern is “Ethan’s Star” from the Mar/Apr ’04 issue of Quiltmaker.  The top went together quite quickly as it is one big block.  I was able to cut out and assemble the top in one evening and then quilt it and bind in in another.  This is the first time I have machine quilted and bound a quilt, I usually tie them.  The machine quilting was very simple, just a diagonal lattice pattern.
