Mod Green Pod Baby Blanket finished!
I finally finished this quilt up last night and am so pleased how it turned out. I bought the fat quarter stack of Mod Green Pod from a little quilt shop in Canmore, just an hour's drive from Calgary. The colors were so vibrant, I was immediately drawn to it. I didn't know what to pair this with to make it a little more boy, but the lady who helped me suggested using navy blue. I really couldn't see using navy but in the end I used her advice and it was perfect!
I used warm n natural for the batting inside then machine quilted some loops and waves and did a little stitch in the ditch to quilt. As you can tell in some of the close ups, free motion quilting while two little ones are nearby doesn't help keep the lines free flowing and steady.
A close up of my new labels from World Wide Label in Hong Kong. They sell on Etsy and the customer service is excellent! I received my labels less than two weeks to the day I pressed BUY on etsy!
This is a gift for a friend's baby... now we just wait for the baby to come :) You can make your own quilt, the free pattern is from Sew Mama Sew's blog at: http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/10/elizabeths-fabric-focus-charm-squares-baby-quilt/
