I didn’t bind the edges, opting to finish it quickly so I can make another one. (hopefully)I used my new walking foot to quilt around the squares, easy peasy. I loove my walking foot…it makes your quilting lines so much straighter!
The backing is a simple sheet, leftover from this quilt.
Oh so sweet. I thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt and thought about the precious baby it would keep warm during every stitch. What a joy and blessing service is!
They also need pillowcases and hankies…I cut up my odd pieces of flannel for the hankies (although I think I’m going to go back with my pinking shears and use them on the edges), it felt good to use those up for a good cause! I also used my immense amount of that plaid fabric to make a simple receiving blanket. I had picked up some pillowcases at the Salvation Army for random purposes, but this tops anything I could do with them.
