Does the binding fabric look familiar? It is from the Quilt Blocks line of fabric by Ellen Luckett Baker for Moda. This particular print is Grey Hexagon Dots and I used it for Baby's Birdies and also for Bouncing Bunnies. The expectant mom for this baby saw Baby's Birdies and expressed how much she liked the binding fabric, so I decided to go with it! It is fabulous as a binding pattern. I think three is enough, though, and there won't be any more quilts with this fabric for binding coming from me!
I used a wavy stitch and my walking foot to do the quilting in white on the sashing on Giraffe Love. I think it looks great, particularly where the quilting crosses over itself.
I also have been working on the HST QAL blocks that will be come a quilt for my daughter. I pieced the rows:
And I made the sashing for between the rows. I just need to assemble the top, and buy the border fabric. I think this finish may end up in February instead of January.
