Zig Zag Zoomed!

I have a finish! An important finish! I finished the baby quilt for my Sister-in-Law! She is having her baby in about a month and I needed to get it done because I now have to ship it to Albuquerque, NM. I have threads left to bury, which I will be working on tonight.

I used Jungle Babies for the backing

Here’s a close-up of the quilting. I used my 1/4″ Accufeed foot and did some straight line stitching

Anne LOVED the quilt too – thankfully she has lots of her own quilts, so I don’t think she will miss this one too much!

Oh yeah! It is also my first ever scrappy binding!

This is one of the projects I wanted to finish this quarter for Rhonda’s 2012 Finish-A-Long over at Quilter in the Gap.

I love a good finish, don’t you?!?

    What a beautiful quilt and I don’t know if I like the animal print on the front or the back the best! Scrappy binding is always fun and Anne is such a cutie! Thanks for linking!
