|The finished quilt on a windy day!|
One of my cousins is about to become a grandmother, which calls for a baby quilt. I usually use fabrics from my overflowing stash to create a quilt, but in this case, the baby's room was decorated with fabrics from Moda's Queen of the Sea line.
Unfortunately, by the time I learned of this, that line was not readily available. After a bit of internet searching, I was able to locate 5 mini-charm packs, and one yard each of the turquoise and coral fabrics.

|Done. I should have paid a bit more attention to the border on the right hand side to separate the big "wheels".|
|I used a large meandering pattern for the overall quilting, and used some leftover backing material for the back.|
|What did I do before I discovered Clover clips?|
|The finished quilt. Soft and pretty. It finished at 40 x 49 inches.|
The baby shower is this weekend, so I can safely post this now. I hope that my cousin and her family like it!
I just finished the top of a baby version of my rainbow in a box quilt for a class sample. I will be getting into teaching and am excited about that opportunity. I am also continuing to work on the test pieces for the New York Beauty Quilt, and brought home some charity quilts from my guild to quilt up before the next meeting. I'd better get sewing!
Have a good weekend!
