Finally I have finished the quilting on the baby quilt. I still have to bind it of course. I’ve purchased some of the red elephant fabric for the binding, should make great contrast and I really like it. In fact the whole range is really lovely, elephants, owls, monkeys and bees. I bought 5 fat quarters and decided on the Chinese Coins design. To make the most of the fabric I decided to slice the strips into different widths. I have enough left to make another quilt as well. Something else for the to do list!
I was thinking of straight line sewing but I figured, even on a quilt this size, it would probably take me a week to complete it, so loops instead. Still nice and it does add a textural element as well.
Here’s a close-up of the elephants.
