I finished this quilt just in time to take it with me to Bluewater, where I gave it to my niece, Charlotte, and her mom. Charlotte is not an infant anymore. Nonetheless, a quilt was due.
I used See Kate Sew's tutorial. I like it when awesome quilt bloggers are willing to share their patterns and ideas. I've had this one pinned for quite some time. I am calling my version "Circus Flags."
Hank and George are my new quilt holders, since the older kids moan and whine about the inconvenience and physical toll that holding quilts takes on them.
Turns out, even the three years olds couldn't be bothered with it for very long.
So I brought it inside for a few more photos.
Charlotte was not all that impressed.
But her mom liked it. That's what makes me happy.
Here's the back.
I tried scallops for the first time (the shapes, not the sea creatures) and I think I am in love with this quilting technique. It was a good way to soften the sharp triangles and pretty simple to maneuver through my machine.
