Time to Spread My Wings

Found this wonderful tutorial on Pinterest and thought I’d give it a try. I’ve always loved fabric and have a ton of it. This is a great stash buster project and it can use up little strips of fabric you may have lying around.

I did a quilt type binding strip along the top edge to clean the edges up. Looks super professional this way. The extra length of binding strip was sewn into a loop at the ends, for little fingers to hold. Or loop onto the thumb for constant flight. I sewed a pretty vintage ribbon in the centre of the binding strip for the neck strap. Looks so good, even I could wear it for a test flight around the living room ;p


Modern Baby Quilt


Now for sale in my Etsy Store!

I couldn’t wait to cut up and use my Dewberry fabrics to make a little quilt. This little quilt is 24-inches square. The binding is double french folded, and pieced together with a diagonal seam for extra strength (mitered corners too!). I especially love the multi-coloured-ness of this quilt!

The backing fabric is broadcloth (100% cotton). The batting inside is cotton/poly blend. Hand sewn finishing for binding. A beautiful one-of-a-kind quilt!
