Baby Quilt Finish

At the weekend I managed to complete the binding on the small wonky crosses quilt to bring it to a finish.  (Yay!)

This quilt was fun to make and to quilt.  The blocks aren't very complicated and don't take hours to piece but look very effective, I think.  Wouldn't these look lovely in Christmas fabrics - like lots of little parcels awaiting opening?

When I first posted this quilt I mentioned that I wanted to try some new (to me) quilting on this one.  My choice was to quilt straight lines edge to edge, randomly angled and intersecting across the quilt top.  I enjoyed this technique and think it worked well alongside the angles of the wonky crosses themselves.  There were more quilting lines than I expected to stitch somehow, and it would have been easy to keep going, adding more and more lines to try to fill in the unquilted areas.  At some point I had to decide that there were enough lines to hold everything together without over condensing the quilting in a particular area.  It looks okay, I think and I probably will try this again on other small quilts.

This one will hopefully be a blessing to a mum and baby via Bee Blessed donations.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I do try to respond to every comment, but forgive me if occasionally time does not permit.
