Quilted: by me with Aurifil 50 wt in white
I finished this quilt on the weekend especially for a special new baby boy. I hope to deliver it to him and his very special Mom over spring break. His Mom was my secretary for many years and I am delighted to make a quilt for her first baby. I asked about the colours and being ever so stylish, the Mom had set up the nursery in grayt and yellow but now that Russell was a boy, a touch of navy was being added. Perfect! So here is a wee plus quilt just for him. I backed the quilt in a soft blue flannelette and bound it with some Kaufman Metro Living Dots. All the fabrics used in the 4' squares were from the stash. I like the contrast of the navy zig zags!
I quilted this one either side of each square in Aurifil 50 wt in white. Just a simple straight line grid. As I took the pictures, the wind was blowing just a bit and the quilt was waving nicely in the breeze. Spring has sprung!
