I finished up the baby quilt yesterday, and it’s all washed and dried and crinkly. This looks different from other baby quilts I’ve made, but I like it.
It’s bright and bold and energetic, and I think it will be perfect for a little boy. I bound it with rayon blanket binding for the touchable edges. This finish doesn’t seem to sell well for me, but I almost always use it on gifts, because I know the babies like it. This is made completely from stash.
The piecing and cutting were very quick, perhaps three hours. The quilting, however, took around six hours. There’s lots of it, in the ditches and through the block centers. I used Superior Bottom Line in a pale blue on top and bottom.
The finished size is 36″ x 48″. I always consider that the binding will take about 2″ off of each side of the design, so I usually add borders. I didn’t this time, because I thought it was okay to cut off the edges of these Disappearing Four Patch blocks, and I think it works.
I’m linking up with Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
