I just wanted to explain a little bit more about my "Wordless Wednesday" post this week. One of the blogs I love to visit is The Purl Bee. So when I found the tutorial to make this quilt I just had to try it...like right now.
|The Purl Bee|
I played around with the placement and then I thought "What on earth am I going to do with a mini quilt?" The idea came to me as I was... well sleeping actually (probably because I dream about wrapping little misses baby doll for the millionth time) A doll quilt. I know it's not an original idea, it is new to me. Perfect for little miss as she's turning her quilt into a dusty mess dragging it all over the place getting me to wrap and then her unwrapping which inevitably ends with me wrapping her doll again and again. Do you see the pattern here?
It's perfect. I get to try out a new technique and practice playing with my free motion quilting foot and little miss gets a new quilt for her baby. And the bonus... it is completely made of scraps.
I'm working on the quilting and binding at this stage. Free motion quilting is a lot harder than it looks. I might stick to straight quilting for a little longer!
