Now that this quilt has been safely delivered to its new home, I can share on the blog. Yay!
This is Toby’s quilt, here before the baby himself! Toby’s mama is a really good local friend, and a quilter herself. I used Diary of a Quilter’s Stick Shift pattern and it came together beautifully.
I decided after it was all together to add a border, and I’m glad I did. I think it really unifies the fabrics I chose, which I liked but then I started doubting later. But then my friend sent me a picture of the quilt *she* was working on for her upcoming arrival, and it was a similar color scheme! Great minds, right? Haha.
And of course, Gigi had to help. I’m still loving this basting method. (I wrote about it before here.)
Quilted using a paisley feather design I learned during the Free Motion Quilting Sampler I worked on in April, but that’s a story for another post. I was happy to use my new skills, and since the back is a high thread count bedsheet, it has great texture & is super soft. And check out those improv blocks with leftover scraps from the front!
Finished off with a handmade label, the first time id ever made one. I’m glad I remembered to stitch it on before quilting!
Now we’re all just waiting on baby. I’m excited to meet you, Toby!
