Teenie Weenie Bikini quilt

Posted on: March 31st, 2017 by Lorna McMahon
It’s always about this time of year that I wonder….

Will winter ever end?


This is the Teenie Weenie Bikini quilt, which I first blogged about at the beginning of February here. I was already thinking of spring then. And in an effort to banish the snow and cold, I got this finished top out and was determined to quilt it up the first weekend of March break.

I used 20 pieces of my “Pie Making Day” stack of 10″ squares with some solids from my Kona stash. Champagne, Putty, Ice Peach, Pink, Maize, Mocha, Coffee, and Brown were used for the flesh tones and Silver was chosen for the background.


It’s more of my favourite wavy line quilting, performed using my walking foot using a grey thread on top and plain white Gutermann thread in the bobbin for the back.

The binding is a Sun Print print called Endpaper in Azure. I used it for one of the bikinis and this print was last used in the making of my Flowers quilt.


It feels good to have this quilt finished and ready for some summer fun. But it didn’t make the snow go away…. But what a fantastic backdrop!

    There can never be too many bodacious tatas, especially when they come clad in such lovely bikinis 🙂 It will always be a conversation piece – at home or on the beach!!!
