A little baby quilt

The other day I finally cleaned up a bit and went through my stash...OMG...found a lot of things that I had already forgotten about...amongst lots of other things, some baby quilt fabric. Looking at it, I thought that this was a pity to just let go to waste or worse still, use it up for some of my practice runs in FMQ (which I had already done with one part of the fabric). Also found a whole stack of white pre-cut squares that must have been left over from a previous quilt. Perfect opportunity to use my new gadget
If you love chain-piecing as much as I do, you need to get one! This is the thread cutter I got from the Fatquartershop the other day...I got the one where you can exchange the blade once it dulls. Relatively inexpensive, this makes the job of cutting the stack of completed units in a matter of seconds. Really useful gadget.

Anyway, here is the completed quilt top
How cute is this...literally thrown together out of of a few pieces of fabric (should come out at 36"x 42"). Nice little quilt for a boy (the darker fabric has little baseballs on it). Not sure how to quilt it yet...maybe just some lines 1/4" away from the seams to accentuate the squares.

  1. I've never seen a Gizmo before Karen, not in my corner of northeast England at any rate. lovely baby quilt, you are right about the quilting, it needs something simple, especially as it's for a baby boy.
