Wow, this baby quilt has been a true beauty to make and hand quilt.
Now, Sujata will chuckle again about "my messes" because Sujata told me that the main technique is that each person will make these in their own way. I thought maybe it was just me!
I was listening and sewing. This technique is fairly simple except you do have to pay attention to which sides you are sewing together. That is demonstrated below.
But then I worked through the directions, emailed Sujata and asked her about this wonky way my first blocks came out. I carried on thinking of the little boy this quilt is for and he might think if he was older. Not any old quilt would do, but one that spoke to his potential and I'm sure that denim will find his little bottom soon.
I decided to get free and had fun.
I like this quilt.
And just for fun, this is how it looks in Black and White.
And here, this photo shows the hand quilting with Perle cotton thread, its bold against the navy blue.
