I’ve just had my most productive crafting week ever – it turns out that (a little obviously!) when I have a few days off work and no internet I can get quite a bit done. I got a few things finished and a few things started, so I’ll try and show everything over the next few days.
First up is my freebird quilt – pieced and quilted a few weeks ago and finally gifted to my lovely buddy yesterday for her new home.
It’s a really simple crazy log cabin, made from Freebird by Momo for Moda fabrics, with a little Kona Snow as sashing and then some more Moda as backing, along with the leftovers and a little pieced house. (The green strip along the right-hand side of the backing is because I made a mistake with the measurements and didn’t have enough green backing. I like it though!)
I’m afraid I didn’t take a note of any dimensions, but its a good-sized lap quilt. The strips were sewn together at wonky angles and then trimmed to 12″ square (I think). I took ages to decide on the quilting, but in the end went for straight lines following the path of the log cabin, similar to the quilting I did on my Sunshine Cushions last year. And my buddy seems to like it – happy new home Nikki!
