Oakshott Baby Blues {a finished quilt!}


I've been pretty busy in the sewing room this week (and long weekend).  As a result I was able to finish this Oakshott Baby Blues quilt. Oakshott baby blues quilting

I am in absolute love with the colors of this quilt.  As one person on Instagram stated, it looks like the beautiful shades of sea glass.  Oh how I would love to find some of that one day!

I opted for my new favorite (and super quick) wavy line quilting using Aurifil 50 wt. 1128 (light blue violet) on the top and 2740 (dark cobalt) in the bobbin.  It gives the quilt a wavy water like feel.

I started this quilt by cutting long skinny rectangles and just hoping for the best.  In the end my points don't match up because of the size rectangles I cut, but I like the overall effect it created that way.  (And the bonus of not matching up points with each row didn't hurt my feelings any!)

The quilt finishes at 36" x 47" and will hopefully be a perfect size for little baby.

For the back and binding I used Moda Bella solid in Royal (9900 19).  It's a bit darker than any of the Oakshott shades, but puts a nice frame on this finish.

I promise to be back later this week to share more of what I've been working on.
