Here is a little baby quilt finished today! Doesn't it just make you feel Happy (and a little go Lucky, too, maybe?). I'm loving the fresh colours. I went a little improvisational, beginning with a charm pack of Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille and a plan to make stars... then adding a couple of pinwheels... then making tiny pinwheels with the scraps from the stars... et voilà!
I decided to change things up and attempt curved corners on this one. I actually decided this AFTER I made the straight binding, and then realized my mistake AFTER I cut the corners off! Thankfully I had enough fabric to make another length of binding, this time bias. Whew! Although wrapping my head around the method was more than my pea brain could bear, despite the excellent instructions found here at Jona's wonderful blog, Stop Staring and Start Sewing! Well, I managed it with a just a couple of cluster cusses. (PSA: DON'T iron after you've drawn all your lines with a Frixion pen... DOH!) The binding fabric is from Jenean Morrison's line Silent Cinema.
I quilted 1/4 inch from the seams with white Aurifil in 50 wt. I finished it off with a little hand quilting on the borders, also using my growing collection of Aurifil (this time in a 12 wt.)... aaaaah, bliss. And here she is!
