Another finish!

Baby girl Bliss quilt 
Just finished this little baby girl quilt early this afternoon and I'm feeling pretty chuffed to have finished 2 quilts in the same week! This baby bliss quilt is made up of leftover blocks from my original Bliss quilt and at 30" by 50" is the perfect size for a baby quilt.

As you can see I went to town when I pinned it to make sure it didn't move when I quilted it and it worked. All those extra pins were worth it.

I did some simple straight line quilting down each side of each seam and also diagonally across the squares with the same variegated thread I used on the other Bliss quilt then added a little yo-yo to each intersection.

Here's a photo of the quilt back....I like how the intersecting quilting lines have made tiny little stars. And yes this is the same print I used on the baby boy quilt. I bought a couple of mitres as I knew they would go so well with a lot of fabrics in my stash.

I used one of the pink Bliss prints for the binding just to give it a really girly look.
I now have only 2 quilt tops left to quilt so I think I'm doing well so far in keeping that pledge I made here to have no more quilt tops hanging around waiting for their turn to be finished. 

This quilt is up for sale in my etsy shop :-)

A great combination of colours, Catherine, and finishing quilt with yo-yos is a great idea. Only 2 quilts left? I wish I could whittle down my WIP list to that stage...alas just a dream!
