I am so excited to (finally) be able to share with you my top-secret quilt!
It is the Sandcastle Quilt and Baby Beach Ball from Sew Fun patterns.
Like all of the Sew Fun patterns it was super-easy to follow and filled with little hints and tips to make your project the best it can be. I always learn something when I test these patterns – I love the way the circles are made on the beach ball, it made it super easy to get a nice round shape!
I did a kind of meandering design on the sand part of the quilt and then tried to do “waves” on the blue parts.
If you look closely here at the bottom you will see that I am having trouble with the fabric bunching towards the binding. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong – I took it out and did it again and had the same thing happen. I think I would have to take out the quilting (eek!) and do it again in order to get it to sit right. I almost did it too, almost took out all that stitching…and then I came to my senses. (The perfectionism has to end somewhere, right?) I am sure some little one will love the quilt despite these few lumps. Hopefully I can get this figured out for the next one!
Overall I am in love with the beachy design and the bright fabrics. As always, I highly recommend all of the Sew Fun patterns – they really are what the name says they are! I can’t wait to surprise a lucky mama with this one at the next baby shower!
