Hand Quilting

I finished hand quilting my son's baby quilt tonight (yes, he is 2 1/2, but to be fair I didn't start making it until he was 18 months old). I find hand quilting relaxing and oddly comforting.

I'm ready to get this quilt done though, so it's on to binding. I found a good tutorial here. It completely eliminates the bulky ending of the traditional method.

More about this quilt and its inspiration when I have finished photos!

Nice! Are his room colors similar? How big is the quilt?

Yes, light blue, tan, and brown are the colors in his room. The quilt is a baby-sized quilt - about 4' x 4'. I'll probably use it as a wallhanging in there, if he'll let me!
