yay. i have a quilt to share today.
finished this one up last fall as an assignment for the Fiskars Crafts website...
you can see the info/instructions (and sketch!) here.
i knew this would be a great opportunity to get something done way early for the new baby...
and so i decided on a smaller(ish) stroller quilt. the finished quilt measures roughly 30 inches square.
it's kind of like a modified coin quilt style. mixed in with me just doing whatever i felt like ;) (which always works best, right?!).
Our stroller now is a peg perego p3 in bright orange! we have the matching infant seat that goes along with it. we're def planning on reusing that infant seat and just replacing the stroller (bc really ours has seen MUCH better days) with another orange P3 (apparently i have a thing for orange strollers!)... and SO, i wanted this to match.
and still be gender neutral. which i think it is. :)
was able to use lots of favorite fabrics here - many of which are out of print and hard to find (for those of you who email and ask about certain prints), and then sashed everything in white kona cotton.
the shapes (house, tree, & sun) are just fun & add a bit of interest i think.
i used white thread to quilt it with a free motion stitch... so it'll be perfectly-super-crinkly when it's washed. YUM! :)
the backing is just easy-peasy amy butler dots, the binding is from denyse schmidt's out of print flea market fancy line.
...& the baby is currently jumping around in my belly as i type this so hopefully s/he approves!
ps -the wonky stars from my fabric post last week are going so well! will post a little peek this week...
