In my last couple of posts you have seen snippets of fabrics, quilt tag making, reference to the butter and eggs free pattern, and now I have named this quilt Mirage. When looking at this with the fabrics used, it has a mirage effect on the eyes.
I started with my fabrics, and the theme was aqua and lime!
I chose the pattern of butter and eggs. You can find this pattern at quilterscache.com
Here is the top waiting for the quilting. This quilt I used Misty Fuse and raw edge appliquéd to the blocks using the appliqué stitch on my machine. I chose a yellow thread for this.
I made my own quilt label, much like a clothing tag.
And stitched on the binding, after quilting. The light was just right coming in the window to really show the texture created in the quilting. I quilted this with a white thread. It is very imperfect as I am still getting used to my non-hopping foot. Gosh I miss that thing so much I may have to get one just like it. That hop helped me keep my rhythm with my stitch length.
The front and the back with texture and tag goodness. This quilt is done and scheduled to be delivered tomorrow! Now I am off to plan the next baby quilt.
I just love doing baby quilts because you can sample the patterns that are on your bucket list, but they are small enough you do not tire and actually finish them quickly. This quilt was easy and did not take long. I just had interruptions of cooking, cleaning, working my 40 hours, plus, bathing. Life would be boring without those interruptions, no?
