I have a finish and I’m so happy to be sharing it with you today. This is Two-Step.
Here is the picture from the book. I, of course, made mine bigger.
The quilt is in this book. You can find the book HERE on Amazon.
It was such a fun quilt to make! I just opened my 2 1/2″ bucket and started sewing. It’s my favorite kind of quilt to make…kind of a grab-and-go!
I braved the sub-zero temps last week to take the pictures. It was -20 degree wind chill. That’s how dedicated of a blogger I am…HA!
The other day, Kelli posted a picture of Georgie sleeping in her new big girl bed. See??
This about broke my grandma-quilter heart! Look, she has no quilt. I immediately messaged Kelli and said that girl needs a quilt. I told her the next time she was home, we’d pick one out and gift it to Georgie.
Kelli ended up picking this one. It was machine quilted but wasn’t bound.
I ended up getting it bound…all scrappy.
I think it’s the perfect little girl quilt. Can you see the snowman? The quilt is a bit of an eye spy.
A mix of everything is in this quilt. Check the middle of the quilt. See the red baseball print. Just to the right is an OLD fabric from the 80s. SO fun. See the frog and the hearts and the 30s prints and polka dots and bumblebees?
I did straight-line quilting on this one. I think it was a good fit for it. Sometimes simple is good. I used white thread.
90% of the fabric came from my scrap bucket. Occasionally I pulled a couple of fat quarters as I didn’t have enough of one color or another….mostly whites.
Many people say they think I have a knack for scrap quilting. I’m going to give you the secret to this one…Pick a color palette and stick with it. For this one, it’s rainbow colors. No brown. No gray. No black.
For the binding, I pulled strips from the 2 1/2″ bucket. I’m trying so hard to use up things in my scrap bin.
I have a polka dot for the backing. I love polka dots and Georgie knows that so it’s even more fun that she’s getting this quilt.
I just eyeball the quilting. It’s not perfect…but it passes.
My plan was to make three stitching lines down every strip.
I’m so glad to have this one finished and will be thrilled when Kelli sends me a picture of Georgie with it on her bed. It will make my Grandma heart happy.
It’s great to have some quilt finishes this quickly into the new year!!
