Finished Green Quilt

as always, click on any photo to see it full size

This weekend I did the final few inches of stitching the binding down on the green baby quilt. It's been washed and dried, and just needs a label.

I like how it looks, and I'd like to make it again, maybe in reds or purples. It's pretty large for a baby quilt (I think it ended up being something like 48 x 66), but it's just perfect for snuggling under.

Here's a detail shot of the quilting. Michele (the woman who does the longarm quilting for me) suggested the medallions in the corners. I chose a wool batting -- my absolute favorite batting to use. While I'm not crazy about the backing fabric, it's not bad, and gives the quilt a peaceful feel.

Whoo Hoo! This bumps me past 20 finished projects so far this year!

WOW!It's really gorgeous. My eye went right to those corners, trying to make out what it was. The medallions are a very nice touch.
