One Down, Two To Go

I spent a couple hours this morning working on a baby quilt for friends who recently adopted, one of the projects on my "to do" list for Spring Break.

This is the result.

The quilt is 36"x36" and backed in the softest green fleece. The prints are called "The Magical Dragon" and feature a cascade of colorful dragons on black and orange backgrounds. The third fabric features the dragons climbing in and out of castle windows. It's very cute and whimsical.

I generally quilt using embroidery thread and hand-knot at the corners of each quilt block. For this quilt I used a bright yellow-green that picks up the colors of the dragons.

The binding is satin baby blanket binding that matches little blue orbs in the fabric. (I can make my own binding but prefer to use satin on baby quilts).

I hope the new little guy likes it.

wow! maybe you can come over sometime and show me how to do this? I am embroidering blocks for a baby quilt for my littlest one.

Very impressive!

Maybe that's what you can do when your daughter goes to kindergarten-you can make baby quilts and sell them on Etsy. Or at that unique baby gifts store at Lincoln Square.
