Oh, the beautiful brights! Vintage florals! Ticking stripes! Graphics! Dots! Love all the patterns combined & all from Jennifer Paganelli. I outline quilted in the turquoise thread which is a great accent shows off the pretty fabrics. Click on the picture for a closer look. For the binding I cut 2.5" strips of some of the fabrics and sewed them together for a matched scrappy look. I love Heather Bailey's tutorial on quilt binding found on her blog. The only thing I do differently than most tutorials I've seen is I like to start sewing the binding on the backside and than flip to the front. I feel like I have more control of the finished look on the front. I attach both sides of the binding by machine. I know many people who like to hand stitch it. I don't have much patience for hand sewing. I try to do it now and again, but not on a binding. Let's hope Cortney loves it. I also posted on my flickr the matching valance & toy bag I made to coordinate. I just need to finish the crib skirt and her set will be ready to mail!
