It’s done! I finished hand sewing the binding during the last two swim classes for the boys. I’m so happy with it! I just love how it turned out with the teal blue binding. I had taken the quilt to my local quilting store, and the lady had helped me choose 5-6 fabrics, and then we laid them all out and picked a binding. I was vacillating between the bright blue color, and a more muted pink color that would have blended in more. I am so happy with the bright blue. It makes everything stand out so well, I just love it. I can’t wait to send it to my friend! I’m going to make her older children a few little things though first before I send it off.
The pattern is from OhFransson, the Simple Modern Baby Quilt which you can buy on Etsy. The main fabric is Alexander Henry’s 2D Zoo, which I bought in primary from Fabric Closet on Etsy. Some of the other coordinates are from Sandi Henderson’s Farmers Market and Ginger Blossom. I had the yellow from a prior project, and my favorite fabric of all is the Pink Bird Seed print from Alexander Henry. Love those birds! I have it in yellow too, but haven’t found the perfect project for it yet. The backing is a Michael Miller print called Word Search in watermelon.
