As you can probably guess, I have been busy with schoolwork lately, so not much quilting has gotten done, until last week. I whipped out two baby quilts in one week, I sure did miss it! One quilt was another Husker Play Square that one of my boss's paid me (yay) to make for a friend's new baby girl. The other was for my own friends' 2nd baby, whom will be hear sometime next month. They were in Nebraska from Colorado yesterday to visit family and stopped by for a visit and to receive their baby quilt.
Sherbet Pips, so if Biscotti is a boy, he will have some pink in his quilt. :) I am not one to stick to gender color rules though, and neither are these friends, so they didn't mind. I call this quilt "Biscotti Pips."
Once again I attached the binding completely with my sewing machine. I love the time I save by doing it this way! I referred back to this tutorial and also discovered how to get great corners by attaching binding by machine. After attaching the binding to the back of the quilt, press the binding down with your iron at the corners on the back of the quilt.
Then flip the quilt over, fold the binding over the corners on the front of the quilt:
and press with your iron once more. This helps to hold the binding in place when attaching the binding to the front of the quilt.
Here is how the binding turned out on the front:
Next on my to-do list are two Christmas lap quilts for our living room, and a quilt my friend Mandy has asked me to make her nephew as a Christmas/1st Birthday quilt, her request: Eric Carle or Dr. Seuss. I am very excited! Hopefully I will be back to blogging in a few weeks, the fall semester is almost over!
