I’m really happy to have finished my December unfinished quilt project. For a while there I really thought it wasn’t going to happen until well into January.
The center blocks got all the seams stitched down and then diagonal lines about 1/2″ on either side of the seams.
I really had some fun with the borders. I pulled out the free motion foot and did some humps and bumps in the narrow border and some spirals in the wide outer border.
The quilt was finished off with a striped binding. This time I was smart and did it all by machine. I think that’s a good sturdy choice for a baby quilt that is likely to take a trip into the washing machine often.
Now it’s all ready for the arrival of my friend’s baby in February.
I’m excited to get back to the Orca Bay Mystery quilt. The final step is up and wow is the quilt beautiful! I can’t wait to get mine finished.
See what the other quilters have been working on over at patchwork times.
