Baby (girl) quilt

I've been working on my baby girl quilt today. I was able to piece the back, make the sandwich and get it mostly quilted. I'll work the quilting a little bit more when my daughter goes to sleep - if she ever goes to sleep - tonight.

Here are some photos of the progress:
This is a triangle that I made but decided not to use on the back

I decided to go with just a strip for the back which I cut in half to make two strips

The quilting in process
 This is my second time using the spray baste and the brand that I used doesn't stop the pieces from shifting. I'm not really happy with it. Also, it smells horrible and I even used it in a very well ventilated room. I don't know - I'm not impressed so far. I suppose I still needs some more practice using it. I'm stitching on the diagonal and then 1/4" away from that line. I'm using a pink thread on the top and the bobbin - I like to be able to see the stitches. I may add another quilting line, but I haven't decided yet. I'll add the binding tomorrow and have a completed, small quilt for Friday! Whoo hoo!

Linking up to Freshly Pieced.

Happy Hump Day!


  1. What a pretty little girl's quilt! I agree with you- I don't like spray basting at all. The only thing I use it for is holding my label in place while I stitch it. I never get the same pucker-free results with spray basting as I get with good old-fashioned pins.

  2. My favorite basting is with straight pins and Pinmoors. Quick and easy to pin and to REMOVE. Love them.

    Your quilt is too sweet.
