A fun small finish to show this week! This quilt was made from the leftovers bits of strings from the Sidewalk Puddles quilt. I shared a WIP shot of this quilt when it was a top and I hadn't added the red yet. I decided to tear it apart and added the 1/4" red strips and I am sooo glad, because I LOVE it!
The quilt measures 31"x36" and uses the same aqua string scraps and Moda grey as the Sidewalk Puddles quilt. I'm not sure of the name of the red solid I used, but I adore the modern look it gives this little quilt.
I quilted a stipple in the string sections, stitch in the ditch, and a ribbon candy wave in a couple of the grey areas.
The little red lines are just a quarter inch wide, but add a major punch.
The backing is this fun robot fleece I got on sale ages ago that's been waiting for just the right quilt. I used batting AND fleece, so the quilt is extra soft and cuddly. It's machine bound with the same red solid used in the top.
I haven't ever used fleece as a quilt backing before (at least that I
can remember) so I was afraid quilting it too densely would make the back
not as soft. Turns out I didn't need to worry, the backing stayed nice and fluffy.
Label in place and all ready for a little one to love. This quilt is listed in my Etsy shop.
