Staying cool?

I am not sure about you but here in Central Ontario, it has been hot lately.

We are all trying to stay cool; having a pool certainly does help.

Here is what I have been up to in the past several weeks.

Kaye’s Baby Quilt

Kaye brought me this adorable baby quilt. It has minky on the back and the

top is similar to minky, in texture and touch but not as thick.

My  only concern was that the backing would stretch on the frame and when

it comes off, it is not flat at all. So,  if you are working with minky, make sure

there is alot of backing fabric and load the length of the backing along the

length of the frame.

This ensures that the stretch runs along the length of the frame and it

won’t stretch as much.

Ask me how I know this? I ruined one baby quilt this way so I have

learned from that experience. And yes, it was my own baby quilt, thank

God. I would have been very upset if it belonged to a customer of mine.

Charity Quilt

Evelyn pieced this baby quilt and I quilted it.  It is really cute and the fabric

is lovely. If I remember correctly, this is for an upcoming new baby.

 

A close up.

Evelyn wanted some  daisies all over the top and we used a light purple

polyester thread for the top and the backing.

Evelyn’s 2nd Baby Quilt

Evelyn also made this baby quilt too. She was making sure that she had both of

the genders covered.   Daisies were stitched onto this top too.

I forget the thread color we used but it matched the top, for sure.

The backing is cute and cuddly.

I really like the color of the backing.

Hope you enjoy your week. I am linking up with

The Needle and Thread Network.
