I made a couple of extra blocks to balance out the layout (the blocks have different sized frames) and added some navy blue sashing and borders. Here it is expertly held up by my 5 year old, who is super excited about getting a new cousin.
I quilted it with a serpentine stitch using my walking foot and used a nice blue cross-hatch for the binding.
When I asked my sister if I could make anything for the baby's big sister, she suggested making a matching smaller quilt for her dolly. I chose my favourite block, added a navy blue frame and finished it exactly the same as the larger version.
I tried to get my younger son to hold up the mini quilt for me, but he wasn't having a bar of it.
He did test out the baby quilt for me though.
The quilts have now been through the wash and are currently drying outside. I'm hoping to get them in the post tonight. Luckily we have some good drying weather today.
I'm linking up with the quarter 3 finishes party of the 2018 Finish-along, as this project was one of my proposed finishes for this quarter.
