Green Patchwork Baby Quilt
The Green Patchwork Baby is finished! This has been a UFO (Un Finished Object) quilt top in my house for at least four years. It had no borders and originally, had the word “picnic” appliqued on it. Well, forget it. The seam ripper went to work, and the words were removed. That then made the quilt of 25 eight inch squares seemed a bit boring. Roll in the borders! The teal blue color is featured in one of the small prints. The was the color-pop the quilt needed.
Finished, it is 52″ x 52″; perfect for a little kiddo.
See the cool blue chairs in the lower right? It was the inspiration for the border color.
Since this patchwork design was so incredibly simple, I decided to try to push myself with the machine quilting. I choose an “eye” shape to sit diagonally on each block. Why an eye? Because that was the size ruler I had! I used a curve ruler from The Quilted Pineapple. I bet you thought it was going to be some mathematical, cryptic answer. Nope.
From a distance, you can see the design was starting to make cool giant circles. I love it when that happens! You can really see it on the back.
Another thing I wanted to try on this quilt was perfect circle pebbles. There’s a size on my Handi Quilter Ruler which fit perfectly in the inner border space.
Neat, right? Hooked Feathers will fill the outer border.
Of course, I tried to snap a few pictures of the quilt on a windy day, but we had fun. I forgot which way I was facing when I snapped of this one (below). My quilt looks haunted……
