I finally got around to taking photos of the first UFO quilt I have completed this year. You may recognize it from the Charmed Prints Quilt Along from December. I finished the quilt top and had it basted, but I just didn’t get around to quilting it until the hecticness of the holidays wore off.
Esther really liked the heart fabric I used in one of the featured blocks on the front, so I used the remainder to make a strip of hearts across the back and put two extra blocks on it, too.
I framed another one of my Spoonflower labels for the back.
This is the first time I’ve done “organic straight line quilting” and I am extremely pleased with how it turned out. I used a mid-loft polyester batting which I pretty much detest, but it was pretty easy to do the straight line quilting without getting many tucks or wrinkles.
After washing and drying it, Esther and Veronica had a birthday party for their stuffed animals on it.
On account of trying straight line quilting for the first time, I am linking up to Happy Quilting’s Trying New Things Thursday.
