* tiny squares baby quilt

Posted on May 16th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.


Quilt/playmat for Becket‘s new baby: I used Oh Fransson’s quick-piece tiny squares tutorial. I love tricks like this, and it really did work pretty well. I was worried about bulk and got the lightest fusible interfacing I could. I would probably get the one level heavier one next time since it moved around a little more than I would prefer, making the blocks turn out a little crooked in places. I also managed to mess up the (small bit of) quilting and the binding, as usual. Tension troubles. It does get better every time I practice, though, and its not very noticeable after a trip through the wash. I also need some more design practice. I like the colors I chose, but I always forget that contrast is more important.

Its not big enough for a crib quilt, but it could be a play mat or doll quilt. And it’s reversible:

I hope their family likes it as much as Chupy does.
