I’ve finished the Beach Ball Baby Quilt!
It’s a free pattern from the Moda Bake Shop.
I bought 2 “rolie polie” rolls (I guess they are mini jelly rolls) of Lucky Star by Zoe Pearn Designs for Riley Blake Designs to make the quilt:
The white background, binding and backing were all from my stash. I used some leftover beach ball pieces to piece a portion of the backing as well. I could have added another row and made the quilt a little bigger, but the sizes on these pieces were off. If you make this quilt, I highly recommend buying a 60 degree triangle ruler. I just used the 60 degree marker on my cutting ruler and it wasn’t quite as accurate so I had a little trouble piecing.
The quilting was a free motion stipple using blue variegated thread on top and white on bottom. If I had to do it over again I probably would not do the blue thread and would have stuck to white for the top, too. I think the blue is just a little distracting. The finished size is 48″x45″.
Thanks for stopping by! I’m linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.
