This quilt is my celebration of it being almost spring around here! I realized after putting this quilt together that it’s definitely spring colors. Little bits of green with some blue skies and some sun thrown in.
The Arithmetic pattern came in quite handy, so zooming through the cutting was really quick. This is a baby size with some extra width added. I couldn’t stop re-arranging the pluses, so I decided I might as well make it a smidge bigger.
The velveteen backing (Anna Maria Horner Field Study) is just a dream. Since it’s 54” wide I didn’t even need to piece it. I decided to spray and pin baste just in case. Seemed to do the trick! While quilting I did have a couple of the first rows get a little crazy on the back. A needle change and a little tension adjustment and things were just peachy after that. I will definitely be using velveteen as much as possible, I can’t stop petting it!
It was so quick to quilt and bind. This quilt is headed off to my friends, they recently added a tiny little boy to their family of three. I can’t wait to stop by with the quilt and visit.
