Such a great feeling to get that baby mission quilt done! I used some left-over fabric for the back but still had to piece it because I didn’t have a single piece big enough. I found the binding fabric in Richmond, MI – a 1930’s reproduction fabric. I didn’t have the quilt with me, just guessed it would work – and it is stunning!
I did just straight lines, 2″ apart, for the quilting. It looks fine, except on the back there are a half dozen spots where the top thread is showing in a small loop…wonder what happened? I am going to take a picture and go to the shop where I bought my machine and ask.
This one goes with Stephanie Lankhorst to Africa at the end of December. It’s probably summer there – maybe they can lay it on the floor or grass (if there is any) for the baby to be on?
I didn’t put a label on it – couldn’t see any reason to. But I am very glad I was able to help with her mission trip in this way. Blessings, Stephanie, and to the baby boy!
