    Warm Wishes Baby Quilt

    Here are pics of the latest baby quilt I've completed. The criteria that I was given was lime green, brown, and monkeys. It was a little iffy to find fabrics that worked, but I did it. The backing and accent fabric looks like multi-color olives w/pimento centers, so I did a small and larger circle to mimic that. I free-motioned this on my 15" Bailey. There have been discussions on this board about how to attach a binding. On this one, I sewed it to the front and used a simple curved stitch to sew the back down from the front. I use Sharon Schamber's Elmer's School glue technique. That is also how I matched the backing seam. Coming soon: the matching signature quilt wallhanging.
    Thanks for looking,

    Sew cute! Monkeys are so popular right now. Love the backing fabric too.
