Sewing in Secret

I do love posting my quilting projects as they are unfolding.  Often I will post my fabric choices and perhaps the first of many blocks, and finally the layout and ending with the finished project.

There are times though when the recipient of one of my quilts is on my social media connections list and this makes the sharing of photos along the way restricted because I want the element of surprise when they receive the quilt.  This is when I sew in secret.

This quilt is such a one.  It was designed for a special baby due in November.  We don't know the gender but the parents chose the theme of the Hudson's Bay colours.  Fun!!!  The baby shower was last night and the quilt was finally presented so I can now share the photos.

The finished quilt.  The binding was finished in the car en route to the shower.  Nothing like a deadline to get er dun!

I chose "matchstick" modern quilting for this one.

Uneven rows...on purpose!

Starting to lay them out on the design wall.

The first three blocks

Yup!  This will work just fine.

Fabric choices -- Hudson's Bay Colours

Adding scrappy neutrals makes it interesting
And there you have it.  It was a very fun quilt to make.  The pattern is called "Scraps Galore" by Ursula Riegel of Designs to Share.  She is a local pattern designer and her patterns are widely available, at least in North America.

I hope you enjoyed this post going backwards to the beginning of this project.  I will be making this pattern again for sure.  So stay tuned for another colourway which I'm doing for my grandson.

Until next time!
