Baby Baby

Last year I wanted to practice machine free motion quilting. So I went out and found this pannel and thought I'd make a baby blanket for an unknown baby gift for down the road. Well I free motioned away and went looking for something to bind it. crazy time. This blue was imposible to find a plain cotton broadcloth to match as it has a touch of green to it. The red and green proved just as hard to find. I was scoping out the local Fabricland's December sale and came across this navy fabric with small hearts. I imiediately thought this will be the ticket for that quilt. Several days after Xmas I learned that one of my son's friend's older sister is going to have a baby in a couple of weeks. Perfect... I now have a baby for the gift. so I whipped up the binding this morning and It is now ready for the giving... I love babies. as you can see the binding does nicely.

This is just darling! Perfect choice with the tiny heart fabric.

Thanks Gerry Sometimes waiting is really worth it. this time it helped that I am slow to finish things as I didn't feel the need to finish it unless I had just the right binding.
