Here is the baby size version for little Julia, the leftover fabrics with a twist. Rebecca's quilt had matching fabric on all blocks. The back of Julia's is a pale blue, where Rebecca's was a white muslin. We used a blue, red, white, and gray striped binding on Julia's. Richard thought the binding looked too boring in the fabric store. I think it was just the touch the quilt needed.
Do you buy your bindings at the same time you buy the stuff for top or later as an after thought? Do you take a block or the quilt with you or just try to find something that you think will match. We have done it both ways. Only once or twice have we bought something that would not work. I usually don't take more than scrap of fabric if anything to the store.
For a little bit of a modern take, one spot is plain white, no block. That and we ran out of fabric. It is a line that is few years old. The original fabric and some completed blocks came from someone in our quilt guild. We added a lot of Kona white and manged to make two quilts from it, one for each of the girls.
I think I like the scrappy look of Julia's better. She has so many quilts and is still at the stage she doesn't really like them yet. Hopefully she starts, before they are all too small for her.
My recent pictures have involved a lot in a white chair next to rosebushes, Richard claims it is getting old. I put a couple in anyway. I like my roses and the chair, the weeds not so much. I also had my helper cat in the last one. Rat Cat likes to follow me.
