A finish...........

I did the binding all by machine since I'm considering this a baby quilt.  I used the same fabric as the outer border since I already had some strips cut that I had used in the auditioning for sashing.







I also got the binding sewn on the tablecloth and have one side hand stitched.  I didn't have enough of the corner black with white dots to use for binding so I cut strips from a fabric with smaller dots.

The Jack-in-the-Pulpit did something strange this year.  There are blooms already and hardly any leaves have come up yet.  Usually there are lots of leaves first.  I also have the dark version and they haven't even poked out of the ground yet.

That will be a fabulous quilt for a baby! The stitching design complements the wavy b&w fabric perfectly. My daylilies got a bit of frost on the leaves, but they will survive. To bad the frost doesn't even bother the dandelions!

The baby quilt is one of my favorites of your creations. Feels good to have a finish, doesn't it? Something about that last stitch just puts an extra spring in my step.

My mom, cousin, and aunt came to visit this weekend. My cousin has been saying she wanted to learn to quilt. We looked at all of my fabrics and she feel in love with the batiks. We ended up going to Fabric Fanatics (they only sell batiks) and she bought two of their jellyrolls (they cut and assemble them) to make her first quilt. I showed her some pictures of your colorwashes and there was lots of oohing and ahhhing around my breakfast table on Saturday morning.

OOOOOOHHH! So pretty. I really like this one!

We have not Jack in the pulpits here, too hot, but I always enjoy seeing them. They seemed to be in a lot of children's books when I was a child. Thank you for sharing!

I love this baby quilt! So bright and colorful and fun! I love the black and white sashing/border.

That'll be one lucky baby! I've never made a baby quilt that modern or contemporary or what have you. But I don't know why not. I think I never want to put that much work into a baby quilt but that makes no sense, because baby quilts a probably used and seen more than just about any of the other quilts I make. So I will rethink that!

Interesting baby quilt - so unique.

When I think of Jack in the Pulpit, I am reminded of the wild ones in the woods here. It makes you wonder if they have some kind of pest eating the leaves, doesn't it? I'd have to do some research on that if I were you.
