New Baby Quilt Top & QuiltCon!

Fussy Fairytales Pattern + Everyday Party + Bella Solids Porcelain (love this white!) + assorted blenders. I was really hoping to have this quilt done by now, but a cold slowed me down. Hopefully little Shylah won't notice that it is a few weeks late! ;) I made the quilt top smaller than the pattern size and I accidentally made the blocks the wrong size, so I was shocked when the floating square border ended up working out correctly. This is the first quilt top that I have pieced with my Juki and I am still loving it!

I really want to use the red stripe fabric for the binding, but it makes my eyes go crazy. I had to look to the side when ironing so that my vision would stop vibrating! I might have to find a wider stripe.

On Wednesday, I am heading to Austin for QuiltCon. I have never taken any sewing or quilting classes before, so this will be a totally new experience for me. I am excited to learn some new skills and techniques!

I am almost done packing, but I am having a difficult time deciding which fabrics to bring to my classes. At this point, I am tempted to drag around a giant suitcase full of fabric options!

Linking up to WIP Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced!

Have fun at QuiltCon! I'm sure it will be a blast. And I think you should totally do the red stripe for the binding. The smaller strips of fabric should keep it from messing with your eyes.

Oh, man, I love this! I can't get over the cute!

How did you feel about the pattern? I've been hoarding some Lizzy House Peeps fabric for a couple of years now with plans of using this quilt pattern.

What a very lovely top! Such pretty fabrics and a great design. I know what you mean about the stripes. On the bolt it is hard on the eyes, but once you make the binding strips, they calm down and will make a beautiful binding. Hope you had a wonderful time at QuiltCon!
