Little Boy's Quilt - Day 4

Day 4

Hi everyone – I hope you’re enjoying this little quilt making venture of mine. It’s taking a bit longer than I expected but we are getting there. I'm in awe of quilter's who make king size quilts - there's so much work in them.

Today I finished appliqueing the last 6 blocks – below are the 3 blocks in the 3rd row. I’ve attached and quilted the sashing – doing this as I go because of the way they are joined.

 Block 7

Block 8

Block 9


And here they are all joined together. I hope my photography is doing the job and you can see just how cute these appliques are.

Below are the last 3 blocks in the fourth and bottom row. I've repeated the hot air balloon and the helicopter using different colorways.

 Block 10

Block 11

Block 12


And once again – all joined together with the sashing quilted simply with a serpentine stitch. I think my favourite design is the little helicopter.

I’m not happy with the way the back is turning out so I’m going do it in one big piece and quilt it using stitch in the ditch in the sashing seams (I think!)

This is all a lot of fun and it shouldn’t be too much longer before I have a completed quilt top and ready for binding!

Talk soon 😊
