I missed the deadline for the Baby Shower, but thanks to QuiltBloggerLand technology, I can share up to date progress with my niece, Erin. Here is the quilt inspired by her baby shower invitation.
I am making this update Saturday morning, and since this post covers many of my projects this month, I am also linking up to Lily's Quilts for her Fresh Sewing Day Party!
Quilting Madeleine's baby quilt has been one of my favorite projects, it is really making me smile, but I stopped for a pause to link with FMQFriday.
I have only the background circles and border lines to complete today:-)
I first completed a little pillow sham to sample the techniques:
I stuffed the cherries trapunto style. I wish I had done this on Madeleine's quilt.
And I tried a raw edge binding. I actually like it and may use it for pillows, but decided against it for the baby quilt.
And more new projects (so I can also link up with Cat Patches!):
The first quilt top I whipped up for Baby Madeleine. I have decided to use this as a center for a full size quilt with large applique work that I have yet to draw... More like a New UFO...
And another New UFO that was started and set aside this month, we did twisters in guild and I made a bunch of them without a plan as to how I will put them together. They may end up being pillows...
And I started and finished this quilt in a jiffy this month, thanks to the Vroom Vroom cheater fabric:
