Mod Squad baby quilt

TGIFF and a Lovely Finish for January. Thank you Nat and Melissa and Shanna for the motivation to get this done!

My first completed project of 2013 - and a little ashamed to say it is a delayed Christmas gift - only 1 month late:) Born on December 18th, I don't think the little recipient noticed he was missing a present from his auntie, so I am not too worried about him holding a grudge!
Første fullføre prosjekt for 2013 - litt flaut at det er en forsinket julegave - bare en måned for sent... Født den 18. desember tror jeg ikke mottakeren merket at han manglet en gave på julaften fra tanta si!


Fabric - Mod Squad by Dan Stiles for Birch Fabrics (organic cotton) and Kona in Ash, Sage and Caribbean. Cut into 5" squares and layed out in a pleasing (to me) manner - 10x10 squares.
Stoffet er Mod Squad fra Birch Fabrics (økologisk bomull) og Kona i Ash, Sage og Caribbean. Skjært i 5" ruter og dandert etter personlig preferanse.



Love the designs on these prints - scooters, Minis, tube signs, guitars and mikes - but what is the green tower with the flat teal roof? I am sure it is an iconic London landmark... And the grey tower is Big Ben, right?
Syns trykkene er kule - scootere, Mini'er, tube skilt, gitarer og mikrofoner - men hva er det grønne tårnet med det flate turkise taket? Sikker på at det er noe i London...


Quilted along the seams with a serpentine stitch found on my machine. Was slow to stitch, but very kind by easing out my wrinkles for me before crossing the perpendicular lines.
Quiltet langs sømmene med et bølgende sting på maskinen - var tregt å sy, men var fint fordi det ikke gav meg rynker i kryssene.


Backed with a soft flannel from my grandma's stash with a strip of prints in the middle to reach the needed width. Bound in Kona Caribbean. I like how the quilting looks on the solid back!
Baksiden er et mykt flanellstykke fra mormor sin stash med en stripe mønstret stoff i midten for å oppnå nødvendig bredde. Lukkekant i Kona Caribbean. Jeg liker hvordan quiltestingene ser ut på flanellen!


Now - just need to wash this and get it wrapped and delivered to the sweetest little baby boy I know (besides Nat's baby MiH, who is adorable, but I don't know him...).
Da må jeg bare få vasket dette, pakket det inn og levert til den søteste lille gutten jeg kjenner.

  10. It's lovely. Great combination of prints and solids. Aqua/teal/green/blue-s are my faves and you've matched them perfectly. Tons of interest and yet tranquil at the same time. Adorable quilting, too. I've not yet ventured to employ something other than a straight stitch. Was it easy to control the quilt whilst sewing?
