A Friday Finish for Fiona!

 This small binding roll is for the baby quilt I shared here.

I love pictures of rolled up binding, so I finally rolled up one of my own bindings, but it doesn't look nearly as impressive when it's only enough for a baby quilt!
 I love how the aqua border really added to the quilt, toning down the sweetness of the pink, but still looking girly.

I used a pale pink thread to quilt a simple meander all over this one. It will be delivered to baby Fiona sometime next week.

I think this might become my go-to baby quilt. I love the simplicity of the block, but it's more interesting than a plain four-patch and I think it would look fun in a lot of different colour schemes.

This finish is another for my Finish-a-Long list for this quarter. I'm really rolling along!

On Monday I received my mug rugs from the swap last month. They're both so pretty, and they look quite different, even though they're similarly made. The fabrics make such a huge difference.
These fabrics strike me as more modern.
These ones are more traditional.
I will definitely participate in a swap again. It was so much fun planning my mug rugs and then waiting for these to arrive in the mail.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Your baby quilt is adorable, Leanne! It's a great colour palette that will grow with her -- lovely!

  2. Lovely quilt, Leanne. I am sure the little recipient will be happy, and like MR just said, these are colours that will still look good when she is not a baby.

  3. Great baby quilt!

  4. Love the colds and the design. This is a lovely gift!

  5. Love the baby quilt!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. I love hearing from you.
