Good Morning Quilters!
Another baby quilt is this week’s project. I have several baby quilts that are finished except for the final binding. I chose this one to finish for a special baby - my first great grandson! My Granddaughter Alexis and her husband Blake are expecting a baby boy in November. The baby shower will be next Sunday afternoon.
Here is a picture of the front side, with the binding yet to be hand sewn to the back:
I love the old time pictures of little children on the featured fabric. I used some fabrics that have been in my stash for quite a while, and made a pattern to fit the size of the children pictures. The finished baby quilt will measure 30” by 40”.
I ran out of the fabric I was going to bind it with, and found another fabric in my stash that was similar and used both. I don’t think the baby will mind that there are two different fabrics (both red with white polka dots) used in the binding! He will like the bright colors of this quilt. Here is a closeup of the binding.
The binding attachment is always a gamble that a binding seam might occur exactly on a corner, and there is a seam very near the corner……..but not right on it. See?
While taking a picture of the seam-corner situation to show you, I noticed something else. Look at how well the polka-dots matched up on the join! I couldn’t have done that any better if I had been trying. In quilting, sometimes things just work out well, don’t they? I’m sure my brilliant great grandson will notice my fine workmanship. hehehe
The quilting my long-armer (Tammy Oberlin) designed is so cute - it is hobby horses, cowboy boots, stars, and cowboy hats. She is very talented.
