disappearing in the woods

hmm that title sounds a bit sinister, i can definetly assure you its not sinister in the slightest, its the name of my recent quilt finish, wanna see?

when 'a walk in the woods' by aneela hoey came out i just had to buy it, i just love the candy pink and blues. i bought a layer cake and there it sat, so i finally decided to cut it up! i wanted to make a cute baby quilt, enter the disappearing 9 patch, it's such a fun block.

i quilted in a loopy meandering pattern, with a variegated thread its really nice to see the thread changing throughout the quilt. i tried a new to me binding technique, i've always machine stitched it on with using a zig-zag stitch but this time i sewed in the ditch on the front and catching the back, it turned out well i think this will my new binding method.

see the binding? you can see the stitching on the back but it creates a really neat finish. stitched my label on and now its all ready for the craft fair in may :)

and a stripey binding shot for good luck, i love me a good stripey binding!!
