Ice Cream Cone baby quilt by Sewhappy
I started this quilt years ago. It is a Linus quilt pattern using paper piecing. This was the first paper piecing project I had done, and really enjoyed it, but then it lost momentum after I finished the top, and I never quilted it. My son's teacher and his wife are expecting their first child, so I decided to finish it and give it as an end of year teacher present. He has been a wonderful teacher for my son this year and it seemed a good incentive to get the quilt finished and into a good home. It took ages to decide how to quilt it, but in the end I went with in-the-ditch quilting around all the blocks, and then quilted around each cone, as well as an outline of a cone in the solid blocks. Quilting finished, label on and wrapped ready for last day of school tomorrow (we finish late here in England).
