So. When I start posting things from the past, we all know what that means. Take this quilt, for example. I made it three years ago or thereabouts. Possibly the easiest quilt to make as it’s two large rectangles sandwiching batting, then stitched with random diagonal lines. I read about this method online somewhere (here, I’m pretty certain). It was a birthday gift for a friend’s son, and I was smitten with that Kokka car fabric. The backing is my usual grey linen-blend that is my default fabric to use, it seems. I hand-stitched the bias binding, so that part was snail-paced, but a very satisfying project if I’m remembering things correctly. At the time, the little boy had a fire engine toddler bed, so I thought it would look adorable with the car-themed quilt.
Oh wait, you don’t know what it means when I’m posting old stuff? I didn’t get around to sewing anything for K this weekend, much to my chagrin. What with a school ice skating event, a date night (which I had to curtail due to previously and incessantly mentioned coughing), and teaching a class (which, despite my less than ebullient presentation, went fairly smoothly), I realized that I had grossly overestimated my ability to get K’s outfit done.
The outfit will come later this week, but for today, we’ll admire my one-and-a-half-day quilt, shall we? I must have a thing for car-themed fabric, since I’d loaded up on the knit fabric that turned into this little romper.
Now that I’ve reacquainted myself with KatieDid’s quilt, I’m getting the itch to try my hand at this quilt method again with two solid-colored fabrics and a stripey binding. Mmmmmm.
Time to go sew!
