I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday. I just got back from visiting friends and family in Winnipeg and can now catch up on my blog posts. I finished this sweet baby quilt before I left but didn’t get photos of it in the snow until today. We came home to about 20cm of new snowfall so I was happy to see that! A few years ago my friend Desley sent 5 fat quarters that have an Australian themed children's print and I thought it was time to cut them up! I used our Highway 10 Designs pattern called Quarter Sections as it only takes 5 fat quarters for the baby size. I was very lucky and found a blue for the outer border that matched the prints very well. I quilted the center with free hand 3’s and E’s design using yellow So Fine thread. I quilted the border using the 15” QP Curve Template and blue So Fine thread. I have a tutorial showing how to quilt this design which you can find here.
I only had white fabric for the backing so dyed it a cheery yellow using MX Procion yellow dye. I used yellow Bottom Line thread on the back and Quilters Dream Blend batting.
When I went out to take pictures the neighbours horses were playing in the fresh snowfall.
So I ran and got my zoom lens to take a few pictures.
A few weeks ago two of the horses finally came over and let me pet them. Usually they all run away or keep a far distance so that was nice!
