Just over a week ago, I had this quilt top finished, but wasn't really a "fan" of it! I kept looking at it and thinking it had no personality. Then my random visit to Spotlight lead me to finding and purchasing the gorgeous bright, lime green leaf fabric for the binding, and I was egged on to get it finished. It also helped that a lovely lady was holding a Very Hungry Caterpillar inspired market night on her FB page Lil' Miss!
Once I had this little baby basted, I wondered how on earth I was going to quilt it? I ended up biting the bullet and googled "free motion quilting". I found the Oh Frannson! blog, and her posts on "basics" were really helpful. So I built up some dutch courage and got my Free Motion on!
I was REALLY worried that I would end up with a really bad end result, but was completely thrilled as I made my way around the quilt, firstly in big squiggle shapes (I have no proper terminology here!) to "frame" the beautiful big pictures.
To say I'm happy with the end result would be yet another understatement! I love the way the prints that haven't been
attacked by me quilted sort of pop out! And the binding just brought the whole thing together.
To shake my life up a little, I've actually listed this cot quilt in my MadeIt Store in the hope that someone will fall in love with it and snap it up! Otherwise, some lucky friend of mine will score it for one of their babies!
And that is ALL I've finished this week - but it's a pretty good one even if I do say so myself! I'm looking forward to next Friday when I WILL have another quilt finished to show you all!
I'm linking up with Quokka Quilts today!
