So here it is, very patriotic! The babe's father served in the Navy so my honey thought a patriotic theme would be nice. I was worried about it being too busy but I think the red border calmed it down.
You can see the backing in this photo. I tied the quilt with a star machine stitch. I don't hand tie anymore, too tedious. I used blue embroidery thread for the top and bobbin thread.
Whenever I make my own design I end up messing up the corners. See how I cut off the tips when I sewed the border on? I need to remember to look up how to calculate the triangles so I don't do that next time.
I think I'm going to go with a simpler quilt for the baby girl. Just squares and not set on point. I might start cutting it out today.
