It’s a Boy or The Rest of the Story

Fast forward five years and Elizabeth had a beautiful baby boy! Yeah, I could use the remaining fabric from the wedding quilt to make a baby quilt! And here it is:


A view of the back:


Freshly quilted when the light was just right:

Some details in that great light:

Continuous curves in the border squares:


“Egg and Dart” quilting motif on the inner border and “curved cross hatching” in the side setting triangles:


“Curved cross hatching” in the central setting squares:


“Continuous curve quilting in the “nine patch” blocks”


The back, once again in that great light:

Machine applied binding from the front:


And the back:


Still have fabric left? Make a giant, all-purpose tote!


With lots of pockets:

And a great big button decorating the tab closure:


And here is the best part of “the rest of the story!”

    I love the idea of saving fabric for a possible future baby and making it to match a wedding quilt! Something to remember!
