One More Part Ready for Grandchild #5
As I said in a previous post this baby quilt was influenced by several different sources: Layer 'em Up, http://blog.maryquilts.com, and several other blogs and magazines. I started with 10 different fabrics and an 8 1/2" ruler. The centers are rectangles or squares. At first I did not think I was going to like it and was ready to go shopping again, but now I really like it. Kevin and Dad voted on the how it was bound - leftover scraps. I quilted it with hearts and loops which is one of my favorite freestyle designs.
I finished the binding while waiting at the doctors and then the emergency room with my FIL and husband. Thank goodness for handwork or the 6 hours would have been much more difficult to handle. Today I am going to make a smaller quilt using more of the same fabrics to frame out embroidered blocks made by my FIL. I think there is enough to do the same binding, as well. This granddaughter/great-granddaughter will be in for a treat with all the goodies being made: fabric frames, valance, quilts, bibs, and burp cloths.
