So glad to have you join us for the Let's Bee Social weekly linky party!
I've always found the Economy Block, also known as the Diamond in a Square or Square in a Square quilt block, interesting. So when I was approached by Free Spirit Fabrics, asking if I would like to play with these cute panda prints... I jumped at the chance to make a baby quilt using great big 12" squares!
These adorable prints are from the Pandas collections by David Walker. This collection is available for pre-order now. Ask about them at your local quilt shop!
Could it get ANY CUTER?!!!
My favourite print has got to be the Garden Party print that I used for the backing....
And the Panda Dot print makes for a beautiful binding...
Of course I quilted with my walking foot, making organic wavy lines, using plain white Gutermann thread both on top and in the bobbin.
The mix of these lush colours puts me in mind of Spring!!!!
This "Pandas" quilt finished at 36" x 48"
and was the 29th use of my 2nd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.
You can find my tutorial for the Economy Block here.
