Finish: Radiant Splendor (not in purple)

This is the end of the road of the aqua-red-pink-blue baby quilt finishes.  This is my last bit of random blocks in this color scheme to use up.

I LOVED making the radiant splendor block from this tutorial.  Even though I was a very novice sewer at the time, it was pretty easy to tackle.

I did a wonky spiral square quilting in the center of the quilt (fast becoming one of my favorite ways to quilt), with some straight line border squares on the, well, borders.  I love, love, love that red floral print.

I did a scrappy red and aqua binding, using up some of a red fabric I am not to fond of, but it looks good as binding.  I backed the quilt with some larger cuts of some Joann nursery-type fabric that I had.  LOVE using up this fabric.  I don’t see as many baby quilts in my future, so it is nice to use some of this fabric up.

I have a new sewing machine arriving on Saturday.  I am very excited and very nervous.  I have very much outgrown my tiny machine.  But I am a little worried about a new machine slowing down my progress – setting it up, learning it, etc.  My finishes may slow for a bit, and that will be ok, really.

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It, Friday.
