I am now on to the quilting of Ice Cream Truck (named so for the bright, cheery colours and ice cream fabric, reminiscent of the ice cream truck in the summer).
|I am straight-line quilting 1/2" on each side of each seam|
|Purple Patchwork is basted and ready to go because my Lilac Pearl Bracelets finally arrived!|
|Here is Ice Cream Truck partially quilted. The centre seams both horizontally and vertically have been done on both sides, all the rest have been quilted on one side.|
I hope to get both of these quilts done soon, particularly since Baby E (future owner of Ice Cream Truck) is already here and Baby R (for whom Purple Patchwork is intended) is due any day now!
On a side note, Giraffe Love made it home today, gifted to a dear friend and her new baby boy (her second in two years). She LOVED the quilt (as I knew she would) and coincidentally she has decorated her nursery in grey with giraffes! Her husband, a decidedly un-quilty kind of guy also liked the quilt (I believe he said "Now, THAT'S a boy's quilt") which is high praise as the mom's grandmother is a quilter and the quilts received for their first son were not exactly to dad's taste. :) I'm glad they were both thrilled AND I got to snuggle a handsome, sweet, week-old baby too!
