Sometimes friends having a baby have a great last name (Queen in this case) and you just gotta use it when naming the quilt! Well, that and the fact that I’m the absolute worst at coming up with quilt names and there you have it… The Queen Baby Quilt!
I loved the central gray sorta plus sign created in this quilt, and was doing that that again here. I was also exploring intentionally ever so slightly wavy seams. Not just cutting with no ruler, but also cutting both pieces of fabric at the same time (overlapping them a bit) before sewing them together. Fun stuff and something I’m gonna do more of. It’s a subtle difference, but it does effect your “wonky” look and I’m ever continuing to explore that… It’s endless that wonk exploration, isn’t it??
I did dense straight line quilting (yes, I’m stuck there right now) but I tried to mix it up a bit by outlining the blocks and then echoing that outline. And I filled in the blocks themselves with the wavy watery pattern I just did on my mother’s quilt. I will be handing this quilt off to its new lil’ baby owner on Saturday and I hope he loves and cuddles with it for years.
I’m headed to NYC for Fashion Week for all of 36 hours tomorrow. And in other exciting news, I found out that I’m going to the Emmys this year! Fun!! Project Runway is nominated and my fingers are seriously crossed that it’ll win. My outfit is 90% sorted out. Now I just need to get used to walking around in my new super high stilettos…
