Bits & Pieces

Grey Elephants – Part 2

Published on 03/23/13

New attached image This quilt was SO much fun to make! I love the “folk art – modern” feel of it. I am really liking the grey and mustard color combination.

I quilted it on the long-arm and for some reason had some tension issues. I changed everything I could think of and can to the conclusion that I need to only use bottom line in the bobbin. (If I use anything else, I have to constantly fiddle with the tension.)

It was really hard to get good pictures of the quilting – but I do love the design I did.

I really like the grey and black polka-dots on the back. The fabric washed up so nicely, it almost feels like flannel.

One of my favorite parts of this project was the “faux-piping” binding. I saw the idea on Pinterest and knew that I would have to try it out. I like that the binding is sewn on by machine – since baby quilts are used so much. The binding turned out MUCH wider than I like to use – so I will adjust the measurements the next time I do it this way. LOVE the pop of color and the black and white stripes.
