I have had the beautiful baby Matthew to enjoy, and quilting that has been my sanity saver for the past 4 years.
This quilt goes back to Leslie in TX probably I will mail it after the gym tomorrow.
There are swirls in the black background, I was trying to make the stars more prominent, and Line Dancing inside the star blocks.
This baby quilt is a kit from Connecting Threads where the top is already pieced and the backing is Minkee.
Needing a baby boy gift in a hurry this worked nicely, quilted with a simple freehand geometric design.
Last time I used Minkee on the back of a baby quilt I used Dream Angel batting so I did the same with this-but the quilt is heavier than I like, I think this brand of Minkee is different. I have another of these quilts in stash and I will skip the batting when I make that one.
This afternoon I made the binding for the flag quilt and hope to finish that tonight. Our soldier son was in town for the weekend so the family gathered here for pizza, sushi and Boston Cream pie [courtesy Costco, my favorite fast food place!]
