Baby boy

21 Feb

The baby beat me to it but here it is: the zig zag quilt got finished this morning during the women’s relay in the biathlon world championships. Excellent background entertainment for slip stitching binding, if you ask me!

It hasn’t been through the wash yet, so nevermind all the pin marks on the binding. I chose a solid gray binding both for practicality and style. It’s a 30mm wide (1 3/16 inches). I like this width more than the standard inch wide as it looks more substantial.

I quilted in the ditch along the zig zags to bring out the stripes. It should be enough since the batting is actually just some white flannel doubled up for a cozy blanket.

I love the backing fabric. It is my favorite of the whole Daisy Chain collection by Amy Butler, and unfortunately only available in this colorway. The white quilted zigzags look nice on the back, too.

Here’s the whole set that I’m giving to the newborn. Not very boyish but cheerful enough. I hope my partner in crime, my sis, likes it too.
