My grandson's first birthday is coming soon...made him this animal alphabet quilt starting with a panel that I cut up and put back together with sashing and a few extra squares (and his name). I spent a ton of time constructing an applique of Blue (of Blue's Clues) :-)
The main part of the top is quilted (I put letters in the alphabet boxes, although they are hard to see). I'm happy with the sashing design but don't know how to quilt the teal borders. Any suggestions? [You can still see some chalk marks on the quilt.]
Also, the backing is the brown/turquoise batik, but I'm not sure whether to use it for the binding or use the dark brown. Your thoughts?
Thanks for looking!
