I am still slowly getting back into a regular routine, and I am really thankful that I had the Baby Carter quilt to work on slowly.
I was able to get the quilt completed and gifted at the baby shower, and it was so fun to watch the quilt get passed around and felt by everyone. I even saw the mom-to-be pulling the quilt out to touch and fold several times, so I know this quilt will be loved and used. 🙂
I used 50wt Aurifil 2105 (Champagne), which is a light yellow, to quilt an all over meandering loop design.
The thread color blends in so well it was hard to get a photograph showing the color. I think you can just make out the yellow against the Essex Linen Graphite here, though.
I used 50wt Aurifil 2908 (Spearmint) to machine stitch down the binding. The photographs of the quilt were taken in Pacific Grove, California. The wildflowers in California are pretty stunning this year, and the park bench with a blooming bush behind it seemed like a great spot to snap a few photos before gifting the quilt.
I can also verify that the quilt is quite warm and cuddly! The Baby Lucent quilt finished at 40 inches square prior to quilting and first wash (all the photos here are of the quilt after it has been washed). I did not remember to get a final measurement of the quilt prior to gifting; I used Quilter’s Dream Orient batting.
