While I get photos of some other stuff together, here’s a photo of another quilt I finished. This one was for my cousin’s little girl. I used fat quarters from the Wonderful Things line in the color way Honest Whispers. For the pattern I used the Fat Quarter Shop’s Fat Quarter Fizz Quilt Patternbecause I wanted to showcase the fabrics which I really loved.
In fact, I loved the fabrics so much that I couldn’t bear to waste any so I reused them again on the back. In some ways I love the back even more than the front on this quilt! I had one extra square from the front so that’s what I did the embroidery on for the back.
For the quilting, I used a technique I’d been wanting to try. For this technique you use a wavy stitch on the machine, increase the length a bit and then just move it forward. All in all pretty easy, but it gives such a neat effect. You can see the quilting a bit more in the photo above.
For the edging I, I had a lot of the pink and I wanted to use that for the binding, but I needed some sort of visual divider. So I took the leftover backing after trimming the backing and binding and made a flat piping out of it. I really like how it turned out and would definitely use this technique again.
Overall, really pleased with how this turned out and so was little Izzy (well, at least her mom 🙂
