Slow Sunday Stitching and a Finish!


Today I hand-stitched the binding of the Hugs and Kisses quilt. Well, actually I began last night and finished today.  I decided to go with the lavender 1930's print for the binding. What do you think?


Here is the entire quilt spread out on a full size bed. This quilt is 50"x50".

 I still think it is too big for a crib quilt. This quilt seems more toddler size than crib quilt size. My new great-grand baby will have a half sister who is less than 2 years old. I am thinking of giving it to her and making another crib quilt. What little girl wouldn't love a quilt with lots of pinks and purples and bunnies and kitties? here is the backing.

Today I suddenly remembered a crib quilt tutorial I saw during the Dots on Dots blog hop a couple months back. It was designed by Julie of The Crafty Quilter blog. It is a pinwheel quilt, but she has a unique way of making the flying geese pieces. Plus, I love the bright colors she used along with a dotty black. I hope I can use some Dilly Dally fabric I have on hand for the pinwheel blocks. It has the same colors in the collection. We'll see. But, I can't wait to try out her technique. You can check out her tutorial here.

Beautiful quilt Donna & you did a great job on it! Love the border you chose - it fits it perfectly :*) Looking forward to seeing how you do the pinwheels on the new baby quilt!

I think I have decided to go ahead and gift this quilt to my new great-granddaughter. But, I do want to try Julie's flying geese technique.
