Baby quilt

we have a new baby girl in the family, so i decided to tackle my first baby quilt.  now i get it why so many people make them.  they are simple when they are small!!!  i did the entire thing sunday afternoon/evening. 

it measures 36x36.  i wanted to make a small one for laying the baby on the floor or a stroller quilt.  she lives in North Dakota.....maybe i shouldve put 3-4 layers of batting cuz its so cold there.     LOL!!


 the fabric is LITTLE APPLES by Moda. i adore the aqua / turquoise color so of course i had to use it as my backing.  the binding is a solid kona gray.



 have you seen these binding clips?  HEIDI turned me onto them and i LOVE them!!! 



for a job well done, i treated myself to this.   coffee, ice cream, and chocolate all in one.  now that's some good stuffs!!

The colours in the baby quilt are fabulous, the little apples are so cute. The clips looks interesting and user friendly, and I love ice cream too.

How do you keep your backing from getting puckers??

Nice post ! Sew loops on the back using thread and slip a dowel rod (from Home Depot or Lowe's) into the loops. Hang the rod from 2 hooks in the wall.
