Seeing Spots: A Finished Quilt

So I finished a quilt this week. Sort of by accident, really. This quilt was not even on my list to finish, as the original intention was to give it as a gift for a baby born too long ago for this quilt to be appropriate. The quilt was from a kit I bought at Greenwood Quiltery on crazy discount.  I couldn't resist the Ann Kelle fabrics.

This is a cheerful, bright, cutesy baby quilt which is not always my favourite. It is also much smaller than I usually make. It was dead easy to make and I have been using it for months as my "not-done-this-project-but-need-a-little-something-to-work-on" project.  And here it is, Seeing Spots, all finished!

Very bright. And very spotty. 
Ann Kelle Urban Zoologie cows, birds and horses. Free motion loose stipple for the quilting in Aurafil White.

A lime green spotty binding.
The binding goes with this aqua and lime print I've had in my stash since I first started quilting.  I think it was perfect for this quilt.

This quilt is destined for a family expecting their second child, a little boy. I hope it is the perfect size to cover the car seat or stroller in this never ending winter.
