Savanna Bop and Hello Pilgrim

Hi all :)

Just catching up by posting a few newly completed quilts.  First up is this Savanna Bop by Thomas Knauer.  The blocks and Fabric were gifted to me for my 6 month old son Tyler by Heather of Fiberosity who had leftovers from making this awesome quilt.  She took some photos of Ty on the quilt one day and he loved the colors and patterns in it so she gifted him the leftovers so I could make him his own mini version :)




It's backed in a soft white and blue striped flannel which was also donated to my stash from Heather.  Noticing a trend here yet???


And I completed the free embroidery pattern to go with it and added his name below.  I changed the coffee cup to a mod flower that reminded me of the circles in the fabric prints from this line.  Why did I change it?  Well, the baby doesn't drink coffee yet ;)


The second quilt I'm sharing today is made from Hello Pilgrim by Lizzy House.  I purchased the bundle of fat quarters I used from Jessica at Remnants Fiber Culture here in Austin.  The design was inspired by this cute free Paper Pieced Pennants border pattern.





The backing is a vintage sheet and the binding is the worst binding job I've ever done.  It was seriously a mess.  Cut the binding too narrow for double fold, pressed ahead anyhow, used a small piece of fabric so I had a million seams.  Someday, I'll have to take it off and redo it.  Since it's being used as a playmat for the baby, I'm not too worried about it right now though ;)


Thanks for stopping by :)
