A finished goal

I’ve finished this baby quilt a couple of weeks ago, but never got the time to take a picture!! I am just in love with the binding of this adorable baby quilt, it gave a whole new perspective to the whole quilt!!! Don’ t you agree?

Materials

I have used two print charm packs for the cuttie: 1. Cape Ann from Moda fabrics and 2. Hoo’s in the forest by Riley Blake. And I also used two solid charm packs from Kona. The background is Sage from Kona cotton and the backing is also from Riley Blake. The binding is a fabric I bought from Amsterdam and was really afraid of using it…such foolness…it looks amazing!

Process

I quilted the whole quilt around the pinwheel squares in a straight line. And for the first time I tried machine binding (I always hand – bind my quilts) and it was heaven on earth…simply amazingly fast and very clean-cut…

Finally I made some (not much), progress with quilting my butterfly quilt…I just love those colors! My golden retriever just loves this one!

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
