Default Baby quilt-1 of 9 ocean bargello

I have nine baby quilts to complete. So far i have two done now. It's taking me even longer with a toddler and my almost three month old but it keeps me sane too! This is an ocean inspired bargello using hoffman precut jellyroll batiks. They were not cut uniform and i will not buy precuts again unless they are by Moda. Unfortunately i didn't realize they were not cut well until i went to put my pieced and cut strips back together. I used a seahorse non-pill fleece for backing and warm and natural batting. It is hand quilted with wave like swirls in the main section and bubbles growing smaller and more clustered towards the upper right corner in the border. I also added a flange around the inner part of the border. I forgot how painful hand quilting batiks can be as it has been awhile since i hand quilted a batik lap quilt i made. Lesson relearned. Anyhoodles here is my baby ocean bargello...

Very nice. Love the colors and quilting. You are ambitious! I remember seeing a thread here about the precuts and Hoffman. I'll try to find it.
