I wanted to make a baby quilt that wasn't too baby-ish. I love baby quilts, but it's nice to have something that will work for older kids too. Or grown ups.
The quilting is a 2" grid which I have been doing a lot lately. It is my favorite.
The binding is actually a Peppered Cottons shot cotton. To account for any extra fraying I zig-zagged the edges and sewed it on with a slightly larger seam allowance. I also machine bound this quilt and it went well! Hooray!
The backing is Chicopee corduroy; I loved using it on this quilt and I think it works great for a baby quilt since it is very soft and has a subtle corduroy texture. So snuggly.
The only problem with making a grownup baby quilt is that now I want to keep it for myself since it would be the perfect size for me to use at my computer. So I have listed it in my Etsy shop for now but it may disappear if I get cold :)
Finished size: 40" x 48"
