It’s been ages since I’ve posted anything about quilting. This is mostly because I have bad habit of only making the quilt top and not actually finishing the quilt. Or, as it is in this case, I finish it and then neglect to send it for months and months and months, but I don’t want to ruin the surprise.
I made a quilt using the Raw Edge Circle quilt tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew. I made the blocks well over a year ago and then put together the top a year ago, but I didn’t actually finish it until last spring.
It’s a great scrappy quilt and we had fun picking out the fabrics and mixing them up to avoid repeats of fabric combinations. I did get annoyed at the occasional pucker when I sewed the circles onto the squares, but it was a fairly easy process.
One of the things I love about it for a kids quilt is that you can select a huge variety of fun fabrics. The quilt has farm animals, scientists, swirls, mini wildlife, robots and so much more. No matter what the kid is interested in, he’s bound to find something he loves in the quilt.
I am not good at getting some projects done in a timely fashion. It’s a little embarrassing. But, the parents think it’s lovely and the kid is too young to care that I took for ever, so all’s well in the end. And, now I have a relatively quick and fin idea for a quilt for myself when I’ve accumulated enough bits of the right colours for my home.
