A Quilt Finish

Remember that stack of quilts that Kelli brought home to be quilted.  Well I decided I might as well start on an easy one….This was originally a Miss Rosie Schnibble pattern.  I asked Kelli if she wanted to use it as a wall hanging.  She said no.  Then I suggested adding a border and making it big enough for a baby quilt by adding a border.  She liked the idea so I was on the hunt for a good border fabric.

I was happy with the “up-sizing” and then was on the hunt for a backing.  I rummaged around and found a 1 3/4 yard piece of fabric that I had found at the thrift store.  Luckily with a little piecing is was big enough for a backing.

After getting it quilted I was on the hunt for a binding fabric.  The red was a hard one to match so I scrimped and tweaked and was just able to get enough red to make enough binding of the border fabric.

We have a baby that is going to be getting this quilt.  It seams to be baby season around here!!..and no, none of my kids.

Even though it’s a small quilt it sure is nice to have one more quilt finished.

Today we’re sharing our finished quilt at  Confessions of a Fabric AddictCrazy Mom Quilts, and Link a Finish Friday.

  1. Any finish is a good finish, right? This will be a sweet baby quilt – not so “babyish” that it can’t be used well past babyhood. And great use of those fabrics! I love it when I can finagle a way to use up the last little bit of a fabric on the binding or backing.

  2. I do like this quilt. The red border really brings the centre to life. Glad you were able to use the same fabric for the binding because that works well too.

  3. I also love your choice of border fabric. I wouldn’t have thought that dotty fabric can create overall such a nice effect.
