baby ohio star

It's snowing. Again! And very, very cold so I decided a day of letting everyone do what they like best (which means I get to sew without feeling guilty) was the way to go :)


I had this little Ohio star quilt top finished for quite some time but for some reason I could not decide on the backing and quilting. Until this morning, that is. I raided my stash and found enough yellow and green minky for the backing and before I knew it I had the quilt all basted and ready for quilting.


I went with simple straight line quilting about 1" apart. It gives the quilt a lovely texture without making it too stiff. I washed and dried it right away and I'm so in love with how perfectly soft and warm it is.


See? just the right amount of crinkles (in my opinion:)).

Finished size of this quilt is 36" x 36".

How is your Saturday going? Hope you're having a lovely time, too. Svetlana

  1. It was a baby-quilt day this side of the ocean too; shame we still just have the rain not snow.

  5. Ha, I love your planning for the day! Lovely wee quilt :o) I was going great guns until I discovered half an hour ago that I had no fray check to finish 1 project, so I'm sulking while I find out what fabrics I need to pull for some bee blocks.

  10. This is just gorgeous! I love the yellow and green! That is very "Australian"! We have this often in our Olympic uniforms- the green of the bush and the yellow of the sun! Adorable!

  21. I love this, I really like the polka dot background fabric too. It is so weird for me to hear about how cold it is other places because there is so little differentiation between seasons here. It has been "cold" here lately with highs in the low 60s.
