The quilt is 52" x 32", made of 5" squares of various prints, and I used the white squares for the appliques. This is my first time making appliques. I searched on Google image and found loads of templates, so I made a few anchors, boats and baby whales. I used a close zig zag stitch rather than the satin stitch. I think it's a matter of preference. It was mine anyway.
I used Hobb's batting, and a blue cotton for the back. A quilter at the fabric store suggested I use a grey thread for the quilting, as it wouldn't show too much on the back of blue, nor on the front. It worked well. I was concerned prior to this on how I would work this out, as I didn't want blue thread coming through to the front if the tension were to be out. Problem solved!
I am happy to say it's finished, and I can now go back to finishing the recessed zipper tutorial. I don't know about you, but the days just fly by! Enjoy yours!! Thank you for visiting!!
The crib quilt fit perfectly! I was so pleased!! I think I may make a firm pillow and maybe a little whale plush toy to go in the crib.
