Despite coming down with a dreaded spring head cold/sinus infection this past weekend that left me just sick, icky and exhausted, I managed to squeeze in a little quality sewing time, and finished up this adorable baby quilt. I used Amy's Chain Linked pattern as my inspiration, and doctored the block size a little, to fit to a sweet little baby quilt.
I really love the geometric pattern with the aqua and white, and how it still features larger sized charms in a slightly different way. As I mentioned last time, this quilt was a commissioned baby quilt for my aunt who is gifting it to a co-worker. She told me that the mom was doing the nursery with lots of "cute little owls" and I knew just the fabric. I pulled out my remaining scraps of this Anne Kelle Urban Zoologie owl fabric, and paired it with a few coordinating prints in blues, greens and yellows, and a baby quilt was born.
Since my FMQ foot is still out of commission, and they are apparently back-ordered at the store (grumble...) I pulled out my old machine to do some fun loopy FMQing. Man, it really made me appreciate my new machine all that much more! I think I am starting to like these fun loops even more than stippling. It was just enough fun an whimsy to go with those adorable owls.
I hope the new mommy to be loves these owls as much as I do!
