All Done! From the start, this quilt was destined for the soon-to-be born baby of a friend of mine. They don't know whether the baby is a boy or a girl, so I chose bright, gender neutral colors -- turquoise, orange, and yellow. The quilt is so happy and cheerful, just like the mom to be! I bound the quilt in orange and white seersucker. I love the hint of texture this gave the quilt, and you can't beat the diagonal stripes. The back was pieced from some thrifted ikea fabric printed with orange birds, and some turquoise print from Joann's that I mysteriously bought yards of. I hand-embroidered a label, which I think is the first time I've done a label by hand. I love the hand-crafted touch this adds to the machine-sewn quilt.
