My Little Folks lap quilt is finally finished! Thanks to Kelly of KelbySews, the host of My Precious quilt-a-long in encouraging quilters to make something with their precious fabrics instead of
hoarding setting them aside. I am so happy that I took the courage to cut into those precious fabrics by Anna Maria Horner.
Well I guess some of you have heard me rambled on about the piecing bit, but in the end it was sooo worth it. I pieced the half square triangles with solid white. I was frustrated a little when the points did not match up. Voile has the tendency to fray if you have to rip out a seam and that happened to me a few times, but please don't let that discourage you from quilting with the voile.
The back is pieced with the leftovers from the front.
I've hand quilted using white embroidery floss - stitched 1/4" away from the seam on the white areas only as I wanted to preserve the softness of the fabric. I bound it in Marine from the pastry line and added a thin strip of scraps placed on the top right of the quilt.
The lightweight fabric makes it the perfect quilt considering the weather over here and I'm sure I've mentioned before how wonderfully soft they are. It's machine washable too! My precious lappy measures 54" x 72".
Over all I LOVE this quilt and can't wait for it to get a bit cooler ( it's been raining alot recently...woohoo ) so I can snuggle under it...
