Just back from the longarm quilter: this baby quilt using Karin Hellaby’s method of making pineapple blocks:
Longarmer Sherry Wadley and I decided a fluffy cloud motif would be the perfect match for the focus fabric, a delightful print featuring parasol-toting birdies. Here’s a better look at the quilting and one of those fussycut birdies in the sashing strips:
For the back I used leftover strips of fabric sewn together randomly, with angled seams for added interest:
After trimming the quilt measures 45½” square.
The next big decision: what color to use for the binding. I’m leaning toward a medium blue, the same color as the birdies, but I’m open to suggestions.
What pretty colors in this quilt! I like your idea of blue for the binding.
Very sweet! And the quilting works very well. I agree that a medium or even dark blue binding would work great for this one. Nice work!
Very sweet quilt! Love the cloud quilting, and blue binding will be pretty. Does this one have an owner yet?
Hi Reigh! Yes, the quilt is for a great granddaughter.
You need to publish a coffee table book! You are a true artist!!
What a fantastic idea, Anne!
