Baby Bunting








Couldnt call it anything else could i?


i used Dream on by Moda and kona cotton in white for the top ( i love kona cotton - so lovely to sew!)
a cotton / linen blend in baby pink for the back, and pink polkadot from Lecien for binding.
This was the first quilt i free motion quilted on my new machine and i can tell you i muttered quite a few swear words in the process.  Hopefully i will get the hang of it soon!

Im thinking of doing a little tutorial for this - anyone interested?

Hand up -Im interested.

It turned out beautifully! I adore the quilting (even if those stitches were peppered with profanity !) and the backing is just perfect. Fabulous as usual.
