The blocks are 15-inches each. There are six blocks. I designed them in EQ7. They are all paper pieced.
I pulled the fabric for the sashing out of my stash. I really like the gold tones with the purple batik. I did some fussy cutting too.
The purple batik fabric has pink butterflies and flowers scattered throughout the print. This was my first time using batik. I am a batik convert now! It was wonderful fabric to work with. I hope it washes well. I will be using several color catchers.
I used variegated thread for the quilting. It really blends well with the batik. The free motion quilting is an all-over design of loops and hearts.
The quilt is backed with grey minky. I added applique for the quilt tag, and added all the information with a permanent fabric marking pen. I also made a tag with Good Golly Ginger printed on it. The back of the tag says Handmade by Katie Dold. :)
My binding application has significantly improved. It's all machine-stitched. So, this quilt will last a lifetime.
This baby quilt measures 40" x 56". It's big for a new baby, but it will definitely last a long time. Now it's time for me to go make an owl quilt!
