I am almost finished with the baby quilt. Yesterday I got the variegated thread for the sashings, a nice pastel with all of the colors that are in the quilt border. I finished up all the quilting today and have only the binding to do. I have white binding made and ready to go.
The closeup shows the colors in the quilt well, although the serpentine stitching with the variegated thread shows up better in real life. I think it was a better choice than either of the two threads I had considered..
It is a cheerful little quilt and it makes me happy to look at it. I hope the baby feels the same.
