FO: Swan Princess

I don’t mind winter, really. But I do long for spring. Partly for my gardens, of course – but also because it’s hard to get good FO pictures indoors! (I really do need to invest in an external flash for my camera).

But until the snow melts and the light gets better, you’ll have to make so with these

Here’s the finished Swan Princess baby quilt. The pattern is Moda Love, and I made it using a charm pack and that lovely silver grey for the background. While grey isn’t a conventional baby colour, I think it adds a bit of elegance too it. In fact, Mom liked it so much, she took my leftovers and is making a baby quilt with grey, yellow and white. And we’re not the only ones – grey is popping up more and more.

Mom says I’ll get bored of doing loop-de-loops eventually, but for now I’m quite content. They are fun and mostly mindless. And they don’t have to be perfect. IT’s a total win for me!

As you know, I found this awesome swan fabric for the backing, and I had some mottled pink in the stash that was ideal for the binding.

Now this quilt needs to be packed up and sent off to Alberta. I haven’t heard if the little princess has made her appearance yet, but it should be any day now.

    That is such a beautiful quilt – even with the less than perfect lighting for photographing. I love how you quilted it with your loop de loops. The colors are so perfect and the gray makes it look less juvenile. Sure it will be used and loved constantly.
