Baby Quilt Top Done! Yaay!
Phew! My Gram’s Fairy Tale baby quilt is done! I bought this kit from Fabric.com ages ago, and I’ve been progressing slowly with it for a long long while. I mentioned this quilt previously in a post here.
I dug it out of cold storage and started working on it again. The tedious bit was joining the triangles that made up the outer borders and joining them to the main body required some concentration – matching points, making sure that the points don’t get cut off, easing in, etc…
Amanda Jean inspired me to work on this baby quilt with her Theme of the week. Although I’m a couple of days late in delivering this baby, there’s nothing for me to lose as the top is now completed! :>
The instructions are clear and easy to follow and I do love the blocks and the fairy tale prints. I’m looking forward to basting and quilting than the Queen-sized Star QAL one :p
Sorry for the poor lighting again. Took this picture at around 3am in the morning when I put in the last stitch in the border. Well, the title of my blog is MIDNIGHT CRAFTS indeed! ;>
Who on earth did you get to hold it up for you at that hour?! I love that there’s someone else who stays up ridiculously late to quilt, although at 3am you have even me beat. 2.30 is about my limit!
My husband stayed up with me! We were both chugging away at our own stations – he was trying to resurrect some dead computers. I do love to quilt late at night – its quiet, cool and you know that there's no calls or emails to interrupt your sewing. :>
the quilt top looks fab, well done to get it finished
Um, WOW! That quilt is just incredible. You should enter it in makebabystuff.com’s handmade baby quilt contest! (Or wait…no, please don’t enter!) I’ve been hopping around all day searching handmade baby quilts to get some inspiration before I tackle one for the contest and stumbled across your blog.
