Finished Blue Breeze Baby Quilt

Last night I was able to get all but 18 inches of the binding for this quilt done and I finished it up this morning (pre-coffee!). Introducing Blue Breeze!


This quilt is for my former boss who is having her first baby in March! Little boy will be here in just a few weeks!

I used the Summer Breeze pattern from Scrap Basket Surprises but didn't add the borders around the sides.


I quilted this one with a large meander in white and used aqua for the backing. For the binding I used a solid blue fat quarter and turned it into 2" double fold bias binding. I usually use 2.25 or 2.5 inch binding, but I had to go slightly skinnier because otherwise I would have been short on my binding.


I machine stitched it to the front and hand stitched the binding to the back and now it is ready to go to its new home!


Stats:
Name: Blue Breeze baby quilt
Pattern: Summer Breeze from Scrap Basket Surprises by Kim Bracket
