Today I'm sharing with you a finished quilt! WOOHOO!!!
I decided I wanted to make my friend a quilt for the baby boy she is expecting soon.
To make this quilt I used a jelly roll by Michael Miller fabrics, but not all of the strips. There were some colors that I didn't want to include in the quilt, so I removed 8 strips from the jelly roll.
Above is a picture of the quilt in the basting stage. I spray basted this quilt using 505 spray, and I also pinned the quilt. I have found the combination of spray basing with pin basting to work well for me.
Getting ready to quilt....here I have 3 bobbins wound and ready. I thought I'd only need 3 bobbins, but I was WRONG! I actually used 5 bobbins to quilt this baby quilt.
Quilting in process.....
Trimming the quilt......
Attaching the binding....
The finished quilt! I spiral quilted this quilt and I LOVE how it turned out! Sure there are some mistakes, but overall it turned out great!
For the backing fabric I used a flannel train print from JoAnns. The green binding fabric is from JoAnns too!
Tied up with a fabric bow ready for gift giving! I love wrapping quilts this way. :)
My gifts all ready to go for the momma to be!
