This weekend, as I planned, I got one of the baby quilts completed. This one the squares are done in printed flannel and soft minkie fabric. It measures about 40" by 48", which makes a good size for a baby for the first year or so.
It is a little thicker than one would be if made with just flannel or cotton fabric. The nap on the minkie is much thicker and I didn't quilt the minkie areas, because I didn't want do take away from the softness of the quilt.
The flannel squares are quilted by outlining the square and putting an "X" in the square, and was done
in red thread to continue the contrast of the accent color.
And, last, but not least, I found a red flannel that was almost a perfect match to the red minkie on the back, to do the binding. I find that binding with minkie is rather difficult, because it is so much thicker and doesn't look like it should once it is binded.
