Oh, and I have to say, I loooooove the polka dot binding. I really didn't know what to do with the binding. I was at Joann's one day and found this navy and white polka dot fabric and thought it would work. As I was putting the binding on last night I kept finding myself moaning over how good it looked. Okay, maybe that's TMI. So yeah, I love it.
I didn't really have a plan for the back, but I am a fan of using whatever is leftover from the front of the quilt for the back. So that's what I did. I had a few zigs and a few zags that were already pieced, so I worked those in along with chunks of other fabric. I don't know how I feel about the back. I don't hate it, just don't know if I love it.
Here's a close up look at the quilting. Like I said yesterday, I decided to go with someone's suggestion of echoing the zig zags, but with randomly spaced lines.
One last look...
The only thing this quilt is missing is a label. And that's because my husband and I are hopeless when it comes to naming our kids before they're born. We've got a list going, but we won't know for sure what his name will be until we see his beautiful face. So until then, no label.
Now I need to get my quilting ADD focused, and figure out what I'm going to work on next...the Kona Solids Challenge quilt for the ECMQG? Something for the Tangerine Tango Challenge? A pillow I want to make out of the Half Moon Modern layer cake I just bought? My friend's baby quilt? The wedding quilt that I've put off for way too long? The list is never-ending!
I'm linking up to Sew Modern Monday! See what other people are working on!
