I was going easy on myself and set a goal of adding borders and making the quilt sandwich. But then I was on a roll and finished the whole thing. It's a smaller sized quilt--about 33 inches square. I think it would be a good size for a play mat or to use in a stroller or car seat. It's hard to see in the picture, but I quilted it with horizontal wavy lines. The borders are pale yellow Kona cotton remnant I purchased at Hancock's.
I backed it in Bridle Path - Metro Orange. It's not my favorite print from the collection, but that's what happens when you wait a year to finish a project! I used pale yellow thread for the top and orange thread in the bobbin. After a slight adjustment of the bobbin tension, I didn't have any problems with the bobbin thread showing on the top of the quilt. I love the subtle look of quilting using the same color thread as fabric.
I think I'll hold onto this quilt for awhile. (Yes--I'm the crazy lady that makes baby stuff for no reason.) Who knows? Maybe we'll be blessed with a second child. And maybe we'll be blessed with a baby girl. And I would want her to have this beautiful little quilt.
