You already know how much I love the buttery soft voile fabrics from the Little Folks range by Anna Maria Horner, and therefore need no excuse for making this adorable baby quilt.
Quilt measures 40 inches x 32.5 inches
Although I do like what it adds to the overall look and feel of the quilt, I am only just starting to enjoy the decorative hand stitching. It seems to take quite some time for me to find my hand stitching rhythm and struggle to let go of perfect stitch length requirement (totally self imposed!).
Combining both machine and hand quilting is proving to be a colorful combination. I have matched the machine quilting thread with the color of the fabric, and have used a contrast color thread for hand quilted stitching.
The voile fabrics drape so beautifully and creases just fall away, even after the quilt has been folded.
Although this is a repeat design, I still loved making it. It was a comfort project that I could start whilst my own machine was being serviced and finished with my own "brand new" humming sewing machine. I really should try to get my sewing machine serviced more regularly.
I know, picture overload!
