Not sure what to say about it, really. It's another finished baby quilt. Specifically, a blue and green string quilt made up of all my wonderful fabric scraps.
Full of lots of little fun fabric surprises. Monkeys, frogs, a fabric selvedge, an alligator.
I will admit, I designed the entire quilt around the idea of using this fabric as the binding. I love it! It makes me happy.
So does the backing fabric, even though it was not what I originally planned. I was going to go buy just some solid blue for the back. But, then I made my whole no crafty shopping resolution. So I dug into my fabric bins. I've been saving this fabric forever. No specific plan for it. Just saving it. Well, no more. It was the perfect fabric for the back of this quilt. And, honestly, there's still plenty left- probably destined to go into a quilt for Sam.
I knew I wanted to do some free motion quilting but wanted to stay away from the standard stippling. I ended up doing rows of loops- some single, some double, some elongated. I'm going to have to remember this. I love how it turned out.
On a side note, I had a great and only slightly reluctant helper for this little quilt photo shoot. Isn't she an adorable assistant?
