This past week I figured out a way to get them together into a little quilt. I sewed them together like a braid, and used different size setting triangles to fill in the gaps.
I had no idea my fingers would look so creepy! They look backwards or something.............
Anyway, for the quilting, I did straight lines following the angles of the seams. The quilting goes in four directions and I am very pleased with how it turned out. No puckers. Loving my new Elna machine!
I added a few little scraps to the binding, just to give the edge a little something extra : )
All the texture is brought to you by Aurifil thread in light grey. I played chicken with the bobbin a couple of times, but I won! Got to love that about Aurifil. The bobbin lasts forever. Even though it is heavily quilted, it maintains a soft drape. For the batting I used a piece of bamboo batting I had in my stash. It is lovely and soft.
The backing is from the same line as the feather fabrics. It's called Wanderer by April Rhodes for Art Gallery fabrics.
The quilt is for this little guy. Grandma's little precious
