New Fabric & Some Sewing
Let's talk about Blend for a second, shall we? They are local, which is awesome. And have quite a few cute lines of fabric. So when I asked if I could play with some upcoming collections and they said yes I was blown away (wait for it...).
This collection - Blown Away - has just started shipping this month. It's very sweet and I adore the rainy cloud print (on the bottom)!
I saw the fabric and KNEW what the quilt had to look like. The inspiration was just there. I love when that happens. I'm quite pleased with the quilting. Like wind blowing. And the humps in the "mountain". I like it. It was out of my striagh line comfort zone. ;)
I also documented my curved piecing trials on Instagram (head over there for videos).
A Mini Pattern
These aren't the fanciest directions, but here are the pieces I used to make this baby quilt.
Unfortuantely none of my friends are having baby girls at the moment. So I am passing this quilt onto one of you.
