On The Go Quilt

I made my first boy quilt! One of my friends is having her first boy and her shower is today so I can finally post pictures of the quilt.

On The Go Quilt


I am calling it On The Go since I used my coveted Japanese cars print.

Back of quilt


It is 33" x33". It was supposed to be 36"x 36" put with quilting and washing it shrunk alot more than I was expecting. I was in awe of my 4 corners and that they all match up. Who knows how I did that! I also free motion quilted it with white thread as I wanted the quilting to stand out.

I also did my new favorite which is a pieced binding! I am really loving it.

Pieced Binding


I hope when Stetson gets here he will love it too.
