This little string quilt is another project I finished in December but never found the time to photograph. As Louis was born in December, I wanted a stroller quilt to keep him warm during our walks outside. I took it with me to the hospital when he was born, and he has used it almost every day since then. It has turned out to be such a handy size. Small and easy to carry around, and just the right size to cover him up snugly.
I mostly used scraps from my pickledish pillow, so the top came together quickly. I used the excellent tutorial over at Film in the Fridge to paper-piece the blocks and then machine-quilted straight and diagonal lines through the squares and ran lines of hand quilting through the white lines.
I used a solid piece of Paris map fabric for the backing.
