Baby Quilt

I wanted to make a simple baby quilt for someone.
I saw this fabric so took a length of that and a coordinating fabric (from the same range).  Quilted and bound it.  Simple - well after I pulled out the first lot of quilting I tried!


and a close up





This is the first time I have tried an all machine binding - it was reasonably successful - a few bits need a bit of catching on the back, but I think for a baby quilt that will probably go in the washing machine a lot - it will be fine.


The fabric is "Down Under" by Shelly Comiskey for Henry Glass Patt #5843.
 I love it - I could be tempted to buy about 10 metres of it - in case I become a grandmother one day??
