New Baby Quilt

So here is the flimsy with all borders added.

New Baby Quilt

I just finished the borders on this baby quilt and pin basted it. Ready for hand quilting. It only finished at 44 inches square. The star block was paper pieced. The pattern was free from the Summer Sampler quilt along. You can google it or find it on flickr.

Sarah's Baby Quilt

This is a close up of the utility stitching I did by hand. Love it.
Here's the quilt I made for my niece Sarah, I utility quilted it with pearle cotton in yellow and gray. Put a C in the middle circle for her last name. She didn't know what she was having but ended up having a boy so the quilt worked out great. I love how it turned out.
Okay so for Friday Night Sew IN I had to finish the upper right star and sew all the blocks together. Did all that and now have to decide on boarders. I already bought a baby size batting and can't make it any wider than 45 inches. I'm thinking a thin white boarder and then finish it off with teal. I originally wanted to make a scrappy boarder then a teal but I think it's going to be too big. The blocks are 11.5 finished. I will have to think about it.
I've been working on this new baby quilt for about a week and a half. Paper piecing the stars. I am using leftover scraps from previous baby quilt but added solid teal color instead of gray this time.
I took Cody to the store in Henderson and when we came out these ominous storm clouds were practically touching the ground. The lighter area in the middle is clear of clouds. Rain all around except that one area of sun.
Look at this awesome double rainbow across the street from my house. It was amazing.
