Well I did it! I am officially done with all 21 projects in the Little Things to Sew book Challenge! I was able to finish up the Travel quilt and add in an extra pillow case this morning! I want to say a really big thanks to Shelley for hosting this fun challenge for if not for her I would have never finished up with all the patterns from the LTTS book. : )
For the quilt I wanted something with spring like fabrics in it, so I went with baby ducks and chicks with a peachy yellow main fabric. If you are looking more closely now you are not wrong, there are not chicks in this quilt at all. I decided after cutting into the fabric that I really loved the ducklings on the quilt by themselves and I am now saving the baby chicks for yet another Travel quilt later on. The cool thing is after I finished the quilt I had enough fabric left over to make a matching pillow case too!
(I uses 1/3 yard of each color of the duckling fabric total if you are wondering)
I quilted the top with a double diamond shape on my sewing machine. It really wasn't too bad except for the center rows where it was a tight squeeze on my machine for the fit. I did hand stitch the back of the binding on though, not too bad. ; )
To make enough fabric for the pillow case I cut 6" of the blue and brown ducks and sewn them together as one fabric for the border of the pillow case. I do like seeing all three fabrics on the pillow case for a bit fun. (The brown fabric is on the inside of the pillow case.)
Little Prince C loves it too! The whole time I was sewing this up he kept trying to snatch it from me. He sure was glad this morning when I really let him have his new quilt!
Thank you so much Shelly again! I couldn't have done it with out you!
I hope the rest of you ladies have as much fun sewing along with the Little Things to sew book challenge as I did!
