I have five minutes before I have to head up to school and collect the kids, so this is going to be quick! I started this quilt in Jan 2011... Hey look at the blog dates... the start and finish dates of this quilt are exactly 18 months apart!
I pattern is a free tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew, Raggy circle Applique quilt. I modified things slightly, which I explain in my original post.
To finish this WIP I basted, quilted and bound the quilt. A super quick process as it's only baby/bassinet size, therefore requiring no piecing for the backing, and I quilted in the ditch. I also machine stitched on the binding to speed things up. I finished the whole WIP up in a matter of a a few hours.
Used up some of the dreaded aqua birds! I have 6 metres of the lying around (only 4.5 now!).
The the binding I decided to use up some Denise Schmidt Picnics and Fairgrounds. I used 2 of the prints in the range, but you only notice this close up. From a distance the scale and colour of the prints are very similar. I also washed and tumble dried the quilt to get the raggy process happening on the raw edges of the appliqued circles.
