Baby Kisses Quilt is Finished!

Quilting:


Finally I have finished this quilt I posted back in June last year here - originally this was for a bub who arrived in June last year !! Poor bub ended up with another present instead and this has sat in my cupboard for ages begging to be finished!


So over the holidays I got a chance to get a bit of sewing done and did some basic machine quilting across the 'kisses' and then bound it in a  pale blue gingham.


Now I have a quilt in reserve for any friends who might have a little girl. Wonder what else might be sitting in my cupboards waiting to be finished.....

Happy quilting!

Baby Kisses Quilt

Quilting:



I had so much fun making this little quilt. Firstly because it was pink and i just don't make enough pink things and secondly because I'm hedging my bets on a friend due with her first bub soon that it's going to be a girl!!! 

This quilt is based on the traditional Kansas dugout pattern. I've made it a bit simpler though by just working off a simple 8 inch square. I then cut a 4 inch triangle off opposite ends of the square and replaced it with white triangles made by cutting 4 inch squares and then halving them.


It was lots of fun laying out the colours on my living room floor. I think it looks like little interlocking kisses. Hence its name - Baby Kisses.

I used a total of 5 different pinks to make this (all from my existing stash)... hopefully this weekend I will get around to quilting it as the bub is due in 3 weeks!!

Have a lovely weekend with whatever creative projects you are working on!
