Remember these blocks? They were supposed to be for our wedding but we changed the color scheme and never used them. I had intended to piece the baby's name and include that in the top but I said "forget it!" and sewed it up using what I had.
This approach was really perfect for baby and her parents. They are great about making due with what they have and living simply. Everything for baby is hand-me-downs. So I tried to embrace that spirit and finish this up for baby.
I found some coral and purple yardage in my stash that I thought coordinated nicely and went to work piecing up the top. I decided to keep it simple and just set the blocks slightly off center.
The backing is more yardage I picked up for the wedding originally but never used. Lucky for me it was an extra-wide yardage so I didn't have to piece the back. **Win!** I quilted the background simply in long loopy lines that should keep it nice and soft for baby and stitched in the ditch around the star blocks.
On a whim I decided to round the corners of the quilt. I'm glad I did. I love the soft look it gives the whole thing. I bound it using more fabric from my stash that doesn't exactly match but... hey, baby won't care and neither do I. I'll be gifting it to baby and Mom and Dad in the next few days. I hope they love it!
I'm happy to also check this off and one of my 30+ WIPs and UFOs as well! Making progress one quilt at a time.
Linking up with Show Off Saturday.
