One baby quilt down!

I’m happy to report that I found time to get this one bound and quasi-photographed. I have two more late winter babies to sew for, so it feels particularly good to get this one wrapped up.

I say quasi-photographed because I’ve been stuck at home with a fever enraged preschooler *all* week and there are about three feet of snow in the back yard (not lying!). I had wanted to do something more exciting with the photos, but as it was, sneaking outside for 10 minutes was quite challenging. Ah well, next time.

I have talked about this quilt before, so I’ll keep things short. I choose to bind the quilt with a teal stripe from Lotta Jansdotter’sĀ Glimma collection. And because I love the candy stripe look I went to the trouble of making bias binding. Ooo fancy schmancy.

Little Lady Star, by Stitchified

The backing is from IKEA. I picked up a couple of yards of this print and now I wish I had grabbed more. It’s a little too sheer, but it’s awesomeness compensates for that and more. No wonder it’s so popular with fellow bloggers!

And that my friends is it — my new featherweight’s first piecing project and my first free motion flowers. Made entirely from my stash (yay!).

Interested in making a Little Lady Star for yourself? Check out my mini-tutorial here. It is stash friendly, just a half yard for each print! šŸ™‚

Linking up with Crazy Mom and Finish it Up Friday!
