Quilting again...........

This is the baby quilt I prepared for quilting on Sunday.  It is only about 37" x 45".  I did a medium size meander so loading, quilting and trimming took about an hour.



I couldn't decide which color to use for binding so I chose a stripe with lots of colors.  I usually machine finish the binding on baby quilts but I think I'll hand stitch this one.

I got the bobbins wound, the straight stitch machine threaded so I'm ready to start quilting the X and + quilt today.

I am curious. Why would you choose to quilt on a domestic machine when you have a longarm? Is it something to do with the quilt itself? Your work is beautiful as always!

This still an excellent choice for a baby quilt.... No sewing for me... sorting and packing all the things I have, but can live without for 6 months or so.

Love striped bindings! Your quilts are all finishing up beautifully. It's great fun to see so many.

Great binding choice. Looking at your bindings makes me carefully consider mine now. I pay more attention to binding choices because of what you have shown.

Such a pretty quilt, and that binding is perfect! As always it is your choice of fabrics that make this quilt. I know you know that, but I can't help saying it over and over again. ;)

Love this quilt! Great "neutral" background, i love the way you used all different neutrals. Im working on something similar right now for a baby quilt!! Different pattern, but same idea, bright central squares surrounded by neutral borders. Im hand piecing, so its slow, but like the blocks so far. Just using various fabrics i have, so its fairly scrappy.

A great quilt! and very timely. I have making that basic crooked block so here is an alternate way to set it out.
