We talked about colors and fabrics and picking a design that would have lots of contrast and ended up with a bright, scrappy combo which included lots of Ann Kelle prints. Her baby shower is tomorrow, and her baby boy is due to be born in about a month, so I spent some time this weekend finishing up the quilt.
I decided to go with half rectangle triangles for the quilt which is something I have wanted to try since seeing Rita's quilt. There are a couple of tutorials out there on how to make HRTs, but it is a little more complicated and annoying than I was willing to deal with so I went ahead and bought this ruler. It is not cheap, and it was difficult to find, but it was easy and worth it to me since I intend to make more of these in the future.
The backing and the binding of the quilt are also Ann Kelle. I love that bias stripe, it's the second time I have used this print as a binding.
And just for fun, a picture of this happy guy. He is the sweetest!
