The Buggy Baby Quilt

I finally finished the Buggy Baby Quilt. Some of the fabrics I used have little lady bugs on them, so I've named this one The Buggy Baby Quilt.

It measures 32"X38"...

The Blanket Stitch Border
I also tried using a blanket stitch to tack down the binding. You can see it in the above photo. For the most part it turned out really well and I like the look. However, I'll have to practice it some more because not every corner is neat.

I really like the quilting, though. Curly Q's are one of my favorite free motion designs because it's really hard to mess it up.

This quilt is going to charity along with the Flights of Fancy baby quilt.
Next, I'm going to try to finally finish the last rows of hexagons on Sunny's quilt. It's been languishing in my sewing room for almost a year now waiting to be finished!

Burda 9676

Well, here is a review of Burda 9676 with bad photos. Maybe tomorrow it will be warm enough to take photos outside. :)

I really like this pattern a lot and Sunny loves her coat so much she slept in it last night. For real. It must be warm because she woke up sweaty.

The one review on Patternreview for this pattern said the hood was so pointy that it could look like a certain hate group's outfit if it were sewn in a light color. I completely agree, so if you plan to sew this pattern in a light colored fabric, I highly recommend either changing the hood's pattern piece so it isn't so pointy or adding a big pom-pom to the tip of the hood so it doesn't stand up (that's what I did).

The outer fabric is Clifford The Big Red Dog fleece and the lining is Clifford The Big Red Dog flannel that was interlined with Thinsulate batting from Vogue fabrics in Evanston.

I'll get better photos tomorrow. Hopefully it'll be a nicer day!! It's been cold here (frigid, really) and overcast. Perfect for getting the blahs!
