Family of Three for Quiltmaker Magazine
Look up. Waaaa-yyy up!
|Family of Three 40″ x 53″ by Lorna McMahon of Sew Fresh Quilts|
This little baby giraffe is surrounded by the love of family. Keeping watch, mom and dad are right there with him under a canopy of rich, green leaves. Family of Three.
Earlier this year, I was contacted by Quiltmaker Magazine. As well as being offered an opportunity to submit a block for their next 100 Blocks, which you can see here, I was also approached to make a submission for a baby quilt to be featured in an upcoming issue. Family of Three was the design I settled on.
Elaborating on an earlier quilt I made called Giraffe Love, I drew up a revised design on grid paper and wrote myself out a pattern to follow. Then set to work cutting all the pieces.
The front is made entirely from Kona Cotton Solids in Capri, Cactus, Peapod, Grass, Sunny, Cedar and Medium Grey. And the backing is Jungle Party by Edward Miller for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.
This quilt finished at approximately 40″ x 53″. A great size for using a solid piece for the backing.
This finish features my favourite organic wavy line quilting.
And a matched binding. First stitched onto the front and folded to the back. Then topstitched from the front in matching threads.
ordered from Ikaprint.
