I made a quick trip to get some flannel and matching light blue thread to quilt this with and I was off!
The one thing I will miss about our old apartment is that it had wood floors throughout which was great for basting quilts. This one I basted in the kitchen and even though it is a baby quilt, it took up a good chunk of the space.
Here it is trimmed and quilted!
Here's a close up of the quilting. I did a medium scale meander all over the quilt and I got the whole thing quilted in less than a day (with lots of breaks of course) and only used four bobbins' worth of thread. I'm really happy with how the light blue looks on the white/cream stars -- it shows up, but it isn't a stark contrast.
Here's a shot of the quilting on the back.
I did actually bind it with the flannel as well. I hand bound it to the back to prevent super-bulkiness in my machine.
I'm hoping to send this one off in the mail today or tomorrow!
