And here it is! Happy Go Lucky fabrics with a Briar Rose/Arkansas Traveller pattern. (I used this pattern as a guide). Plus some daisies. Because they look happy too.
I was inspired by the quilt Traceyjay has been making. Though mine is a simpler and much smaller version. Instead of making teeny 16 patches, I used charm squares and just did simple 4 patches. This is also a baby quilt – haven’t measured it precisely but I do know it’s less than 50” x 60”.
I know it’s less than that because I used a polar fleece blanket to back it and its measurements are 50” x 60”. Using fleece or flannel for the backing is one of my fave ways to finish a quilt lately. I don’t use batting. It makes for a lovely lightweight and snuggly quilt.
I have pretty much given up on FMQ. I don’t think it’s a technique that suits me. So I am embracing the straight line quilting! I just followed the middle seams in the negative space then quilted 3/4” either side. Makes for a nice lattice look on the back.
So now this little beauty is finished, I have given myself permission to start a new project. Although perhaps I ought to get a couple other WiPs finished first…
