It's Blogger's Quilt Festival this week and I'm sharing Gabriel's Baby Quilt, a 41" x 46" quilt that I finished in July, 2009. My dear friend had her first baby and I gave him this quilt. It was the first quilt I made since I got hooked on modern quilting and it's my favourite quilt to date!
I thought I'd share the process from start to finish.
I headed to The Cloth Shop and picked out fabrics from Paula Prass's Flights of Fancy line in the ocean colourway.
After piecing the top, I sent it all off to the longarm quilter.
I love the hand stitched stripy binding and mitered corners! In comparison, I give you my first quilt (completed in Spring 1997) with square corners and machine stitched binding.
It was stipple quilted by Jackee Thaysen of Jackee's Quiltworks.
Writing the label directly on to the backing was nerve wracking, but I love how it turned out!
