"Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails,
That's what little boys are made of!"
...and that's what's in this quilt for a newborn baby boy! Well maybe not 'puppy dogs tails' but there's plenty of snails and bugs.
Lori's Rail Fence Baby Quilt, decided on 4 - 2 1/2" wide strips to make an 8 1/2" wide block. The problem was, my 'rail fence' design didn't look anywhere near like hers with the fabrics I'd chosen. In fact, it looked awful. Decisions, decisions. After playing around with the blocks on my flannel wall, settled on this simple design incorporating a lot of white. It needed the white to offset the bright fabric, I think. Forgot to take a pre-quilted photo.
Found stripe fabric in my stash that matched the colors of this quilt to use for the binding. The binding was cut on grain, not bias, but worked fine for this application. Used my Alabama Quilt post links to re-read the post on how I made the binding and bound that quilt.
Wendi's technique at Shiny Happy World How to Bind a Quilt's video with the exception, again, that I sewed the binding to the back first...
catawampus. It came out fine. Whew! You can see the quilting drag lines that I think a walking foot would take care of. Oh well.
