Binding and Stitching x +

The thing about small quilts is that they are really easy to stitch and bind.
I used some lime pearl 8 which I found in my basket of colours.
I could do lots more stitching but the basics will have to do for now since I have 3 more quilts still waiting to be done.
The next thing to do was to chose some binding. I had green in mind initially but no matter how hard I tried to use fabric from my own stash, nothing seemed to be right.
A quick dash to Amitie and I had the best match in hand.
It was funny because I couldn't see anything and Judy picked up a couple of things and then grabbed these stripes that went ZING! 
We both went "Wow!" because the fabric practically sang to us.
The photos don't do it justice. The binding is only half on but I couldn't wait to photograph it.
Baby Capri received her blanket this weekend.
The backing was with Anna Marie Horner Velveteen - so yummy.
It's been a beautiful weekend of fine weather and I'm feeling a lot better after a hectic week back at school.
