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.
