I noted in an earlier post that I planned to make a simple quilt to complete the baby ensemble for my new grandchild. He came into this world a few weeks early, so I scrambled to complete it before the baby shower this weekend.
My inspiration was from Cluck Cluck Sew. I used all one color for the background piecing but I just wasn’t thrilled with all that bluish grayish greenish background, so I decided to add a few blocks using one of the print fabrics from the same line. It is the same print that I used for my daughter’s nursing apron. I reviewed the fabric choices in my Infant Car Seat Cover and Nursing Apron post. Those print blocks really helped to break up that sea of bluish grayish green.
Adding the binding is always my favorite part of a quilt, not only because it means it is complete, but it finishes it off like a frame finishes a photo.
