Second Finish for the FAL2016

This took a while, but here it is...the completed Tumbling Blocks baby quilt
This is my second finish for the FAL 2016

Details of the quilt:

Size: 41in x 53in
Fabric: Main fabric is an Ann Kelle design (Urban Zoologie) for Robert Kaufmann fabrics
Threads used: Gutermann for construction and straight line quilting; Invisible Monofilament thread for SID; Aurifil 50/2 for other FMQ designs
Finish: straight line quilting across the cubes with loop design in the feature fabric; continuous heart design in the inner border and more loops in the outer border.
Binding: Left over strips of fabric used which gives the whole quilt a bit of a lift

Particularly proud of:  Y-seam construction

Backing: found the perfect colour match

This is the second finish for the FAL 2016. My original goal list appeared HERE.

  1. Hi Karin
    Just linking up from Sew Fresh Quilts. I'm not a new quilter, been doing it for a few years, but I am a very new blogger.
    Love the colours in your Tumbling Blocks baby quilt, lovely and bright, just what babies like.

  2. Congratualtions on your finish... something to be really proud of! My youngest son is a big fan of Hippo's, or hippocamus as he calls them... he would get a big kick out of this!
