A Finished Baby Quilt, and a Back to Piece

On my design wall I have the orphan blocks and taupey fabric I to use to piece the back to the blue and orange donation quilt.  I see one of the larger ones needs to be turned.   Returning to this after time off makes it a little better, though backings are still not my favorite.

On Saturday I finished the aqua and gray HST baby quilt, and it makes me very happy.  I really enjoyed doing the quilting on it.

The gray zigzags and the print feathers have an extra layer of batting under them for a gentle trapunto effect.

The back is gray, white, and yellow.  The gray and yellow look brown in photos, but in person it’s a good match to the front.

This quilt is 36″ x 42″, my favorite baby size, made from 168 3″ blocks.

I’m linking up to Design Wall Monday on Patchwork Times.
