Quilt #2 Complete - For the Little One

This 2nd of 2 quilts is for my younger son Silas:

Sitting pretty on the bed.

I really like the way the second quilt came out - maybe more so than the first.  I really like how the simple straight line quilting did not distract from the playful quilt top.  I machine quilt straight lines about 2.5 inches apart in one direction and 3.5 inches in the other - creating squares throughout the whole quilt.

Another view of the top. Shows the squares created by the quilting much more in this photo. 

To go with the straight lines of the quilting, I chose a striped fabric for the binding. I love the look of striped binding on a quilt...followed closely by polka dots and solids :).

Here's a closeup of the binding:
Don't you love stripes :). I don't have a closeup of the back of the quilt, but it's pretty much what you could see in the photo here. It's an all green apple solid cotton fabric. It matches the binding and quilt top perfectly.

So what is happening with these quilts now?


For now they are hanging out in my kids' rooms, looking pretty.  It's just turned really hot here in the last couple of weeks, so these little babies will have to wait till colder weather to be used.  Can't wait to break these out when the weather turns again.
