The Arithmetic pattern came in quite handy, so zooming through the cutting was really quick. This is a baby size with some extra width added. I couldn't stop re-arranging the pluses, so I decided I might as well make it a smidge bigger.
The velveteen backing (Anna Maria Horner Field Study) is just a dream. Since it's 54'' wide I didn't even need to piece it. I decided to spray and pin baste just in case. Seemed to do the trick! While quilting I did have a couple of the first rows get a little crazy on the back. A needle change and a little tension adjustment and things were just peachy after that. I will definitely be using velveteen as much as possible, I can't stop petting it!
It was so quick to quilt and bind. This quilt is headed off to my friends, they recently added a tiny little boy to their family of three. I can't wait to stop by with the quilt and visit.
Finished size 42'' x 42'', various solids, Cloud 9's Eloise Renouf and Skinny Laminx, some Lizzy House, Dear Stella, and even a pinch of Anna Maria Horner.
