Special finish

It's always a SPECIAL finish when the quilt is
HAND QUILTED!!!

I know. I know.
It's a baby quilt...
but it still makes me mighty proud to say it's
HAND QUILTED!
:)

I looked high and low for some orange/gold fabric
for the binding.
It was NOT to be found at my house...
and I was NOT going to buy fabric just for the binding!!!!

Thankfully I started looking for other colors that might work...
and I think this blue polka dot turned out to be
PERFECTO!
Good thing I kept searching!!!

There have been a lot of baby quilts on this blog recently.
And...
There will be MORE!!!

Many friends and daughters of friends...
and family members...and.....
are having babies!!!

I'm happy.
I like making baby quilts.
I may even HAND QUILT the next one...
We'll see!!!
;)

  5. I love how those orange little squares make the whole quilt sing! Which size do you typically make the baby quilts?
