For Baby W

1 Sep

This quilt was full of firsts for me. It was the first strip quilt I have done. The first full sized quilt I quilted myself. The first time I used spray basting. And the first time I used a linen blend.

There were many challenges in this quilt and I learnt some valuable lessons. Thankfully the imperfections are part of the handmade charm right?

I will publish a process post in a few days outlining some of the problems I had and how I did my very best to fix them. But for now, some photos of the finished product.

The front:

The back:

Binding and label detail:

And all ready to go for a baby who is due to arrive any day!
