My daughter has been visiting a nearby farm, first for summer horse camp and now for weekly lessons, for a few years now. The owners are a husband-wife duo we have come to absolutely adore. The owner’s daughter just had her first baby. Back in August. , Between the end of summer activities and the back to school chaos (right??) I ended up a bit behind on a gift to celebrate the new arrival.
This little quilt was the perfect project for immediate satisfaction (and last minute gift giving!).
From start to finish the top took a total of … five minutes… to cut even edges. The cheater print, Apples Barn Cow, from the organic Free Range collection on the front made a quick start. Bah Bah Black Sheep on the back and Polka Oot in Black for the binding round out the rest of the quilt.
When it was done I realized….it was reversible. BONUS!
I drew the lines on the quilt diagonally in both directions with my beloved Frixion pen and sewed the back and front together with the batting sandwiched in between. An hour later of easy sewing I had a quilt ready for the binding. Seriously….an hour!
Three episodes of Project Runway later and the binding was hand sewn on!
All told, the quilt took about an hour of assembly, creating the binding and behind the sewing machine and just over two hours of hand stitching. Not bad for a completed quilt!
I didn’t write up a full tutorial but if anyone wants more information just let me know.
Any one else have a QUICK quilt to share?
