    Baby quilt

    Originally, the idea was that I was going to hand quilt it, but I quickly discovered that I am not a hand-quilter! I bow down to those who can hand-quilt and have the enormous patience required!

    So, I machine quilted it, using a stencil for every other strip and a serpentine stitch in between, with FMQ pebbles for the rest.

    It was my first attempt at putting on a binding by machine and turned out a little rough...I think I may go back over it with a decorative stitch to tack down the areas that aren't flat.

    That is a nice easy pattern for baby quilts. Like your colour choices.

    Cute quilt! Maybe some rick rack in bright green or orange would look good on your edge.

    I agree with Tartan. Rick Rack looks great on any kid's quilt and can hide any mistakes.

    beautiful quilt, i want to make one of these too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    How do you keep rick rack from folding over when it's laundered? My experience is that it kinda rolls up instead of staying flat.

    Have you tried Machine Binding with a Flange? Its super easy and totally eliminates this problem. (Lots of tutorials online.) I also love the finished look. Its the only way I do binding! I'm attaching a scan of the corner of one of my chicken quilts. The striped fabric is the back view and in the front you can see the green binding with the rust-gold flange. Don't give up until you try it!
