It's a beautiful day in May so I thought that I would jump outside and snap a couple shots of my latest finish - "Snack Time" by Jay Bird Quilts. I have had this quilt sitting in my quilting closet FOREVER completely finished and with the binding machine sewn on. All that I had to do was hand turn it to the back - sigh. It's not a favorite thing of mine to do so it sat for a while until I decided to finish it. I need to get started on the binding right away now!! Note to sell ;-)
I really love this quilt. I love the Kona solids and the bright tones. It's a fun quilt and I look forward to having it up on my wall! It will match the nicer weather.
Although I used the pattern for this quilt I completely die-cut this quilt using only a few dies. I did an entire blog post on how I translated this pattern to die-cutting. It really is easy to do if you stop to read the pattern before starting and take stock of what dies you have first - I promise!
I used a 40 weight FilTech Glide thread in white on the top and back and used one of my Loricles grooved boards to quilt the baptist fans. I was thinking about really custom quilting it but something about it just seemed too much :-/
It's odd that I finished the baby quilt made of left-overs before I finished this one!!
