This is such a quick and easy quilt. The pattern can be made with half square triangles (a lot of work!), but I used this tutorial – piecing strips, cutting squares and piecing blocks on point.
I would have liked more a quilting done with perfectly straight stitching (and walking foot). But rotating the quilt under the needle every few inches is not for me. Not now, at least. I don’t have enough patience. So I admire those of you who can do it!
I have a new friend- this lint roller. Since this is a baby quilt, I thought it needs to be perfectly clean before I start quilting. I don’t want to catch cat hair (or my hair) in the stitches.
After I made the quilt sandwich, I rolled it over the surface of the top, just before adding pins to keep the layers together.
And I used it a few more times until the quilt was finished and wrapped in a pretty paper. It’s a present for a baby.
