Most recently I fell in absolute love with the On the Farm line by Riley Blake. My youngest Robot Child is obsessed with piggies, so when we saw those cute little piggies I knew I had to make it.
This one isn't for her, but I will be making her a bigger version as demanded by Robot Child #2.
I love the colors in this line too. I decided to go with a red candy apple minky for the back. Ooooh, it's so delicious. I can't keep my hands off it. I chose a polka dot red to bind it with...I'm still not quite sure it pulls everything together, kind of wishing I would have gone with the green/pink plaid print for the binding, but oh well. Too late now!
I cross-hatch quilted it, with red thread on the bottom, cream on top. I am in love with how the quilting turned out on the back. Altho I immenselyI made myself a quilt a while ago (still need to show that) and I backed it with a grey minky. This quilt lays on my bed and I sleep with it every night....I often find myself rubbing the minky like a 3 year old. I just need my thumb in my mouth next. Haha. It's amazing.
hate despise the mess that minky makes, I have gotten over my fear of quilting with it. It's really quite easy and I do love the end result.
