…because Dotty Half Square Triangles baby quilt is not a very inspiring name of any quilt!
Last month, after our guild meeting, I wandered into the shop where we meet. I did not plan on buying anything, I did not even think ‘I’m going to be good’… I had no fabric envy, no itchy fingers… So when I found these charming charm packs, I did not feel any guilt, just go them because everybody needs dotty fabric in their life…
And now what to do with these little pink cuties? I did not think much and hard about it – it was to be a HST baby quilt. I love HST, it only requires to trace, sew, cut and repeat. I through in a Tiffany-ish blue fabric to break the pinkness and here it is.
But what to do quilting-wise? I think I’m suffering from a ‘quilting blockage’. I find it very difficult to go from the ‘finished-top’ stage to the ‘it’s-now-a-quilt’ stage. I decided on a simplistic approach – straight lines. Initially, I was going to quilt verticals on the entire top, and then I got bored and started adding diagonals to echo the triangles (and showcase my not-so-accurate sewing).
As for the title of this post and quilt, it comes from the turquoise fabric.
Maybe a bit ‘cheesy’ for a baby. Oh well, the print might have faded by the time this little baby girl can read!
NB. the charm packs are from Michael Miller Modern Basics collection. I used 2 packs, omitting the houndstooth print squares.
