A dear friend is expecting a baby boy and I wanted to make her a quilt. I love Cotton and Steel’s Bluebird line and was especially taken with the lion heart and octopus fabrics. Although I thought about different pieced block designs, I didn’t like the idea of cutting up the fabric. In the end, I just used these two beautiful fabrics and hand quilted free form wavy lines that I enjoyed swooping across the fabric with my chalk liner. It went so fast and was such a fun project. More close-ups of curvy quilting lines below. Whole cloth quilting goes so fast! No seam allowances to quilt through!The biniding was hand stitched. A bit wonky on the corners since I am out of practice.I don’t remember the last time I bound a quilt. Many years. I was a bit out of practice but it came back. The wonkyness means it was handmade. Love in every stitch.And I used a nursebeansews label for the first time!
