Make someone happy

     The last inch of binding has been sewn down and the last knot buried.  The crib quilt I have been working on (first blogged here) for the 100 Quilts for Kids event at Swim Bike Quilt is done.

    Scrappy bindings are my favorite- they neatly pull the whole quilt together when composed of the fabrics used in the blocks.  I used four of the six prints from the quilt blocks, two Jenean Morrison Wild World prints along with a couple of the other complementary fabrics.  I quilted by following the zig zag lines of the pattern.   
     I'm in love with the quilt and wish I could keep it, but I'm glad to help a child in need and grateful to be in a position to do so.  I hope the child who receives the quilt gets much warmth and comfort from it. [Edit 10/28/11- This quilt is going to Project Night Night.]


  1. Congrats on the finish, it looks great :o)

  2. What a happy quilt! I agree -- scrappy bindings are cute. :)

  3. The blue and yellow are stunning. I love scrappy binding as well;)


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
