Green, Green, Green

I finished this quilt for a work friend's baby about a month ago, and have only just got around to editing the photos. Unfortunately I was in a rush taking them, and obviously didn't take the time to get it straight - it's somewhat distorted here!


I used a selection of green flannel prints to create wide borders around small pieces of scraps of the blue owl fabric, then sashed the blocks with white.


I was in rather a rush to get this one finished (it was completed at about 4am on our last day in the office together!) which was good justification for using my current favourite quilting pattern. the open meandering feather just happens to quilt up quickly, and I'm really pleased with it.


I find that the double-fold binding can be quite bulky done in flannel, so this time I used a plain cotton print for the binding. The brown matches the brown in the blue block centres, and I like the effect of the pattern. I used a coordinating print for the backing.


Now I'm just waiting for news of the arrival of the baby; he or she is due in about a week...

It looks great! And as always, in awe that you are coherent enough to be sewing at that time of night (morning?).
