The binding on the baby quilt is done, it's washed and ready to be sent to the new owner. Here are the finished pictures before washing and after.
Size: 41" x 53" Before quilting
39" x 50.5" After washing
Top: 100% cotton
Bating: Kyoto Bamboo Blend by Moda
Backing: 100% cotton Flannel
Working with bamboo batting in this project has been a delight. I love the smoothness and how everything lay flat nicely. There is no batting poking through the needle holes at all. The quilt drapes nicely and has a little weight to it. I think this is great for a baby or small children. I will ask for feedback from the baby's family to see how they like the quilt.
The only thing that I don't like, in the slightest degree, is wrinkles after washing. The quilt looks a little puffy as if I used a thicker batting.
Now it's time to pull some fabric for a new project. Remember the denim quilt I was making some months ago before I had to put everything aside to work on the baby quilt? You can read about it here. I have been working on quilting it along side the baby quilt. When I was stuck, couldn't decide what to do next with the baby quilt, I went back to work on quilting the denim quilt. Here is the sneak peek.
While I'm working on quilting this quilt, I thought I would pull out some more fabric for the second denim quilt. Here they are....
What can I say; the fun continues......
Thanks for visiting and have a great week.
