Good Folks Baby Quilt

I finished up the baby quilt made from the trimmed HST from this quilt.  With the quilting, I emphasized the zigzag shape in the solid, and I tried a free motion design within the diamonds.
I love the colors against the gray and that I get to showcase every fabric from my treasured Good Folks collection in one place.
 
This was my first time binding a quilt with shot cotton, and it is perfect for binding - so lightweight and soft.  The color is Lipstick.
Another first for me with this quilt was a flannel backing.  For some reason I thought flannel would be hard to quilt, but it was no different than quilting cotton.  And it feels so great!  Very cuddly for this baby quilt.  It is another Anna Maria Horner fabric, from her Folksy Flannel line.  I really like how many of her fabrics, from various lines, coordinate well.
This baby quilt finished at 39 x 39.

Another lovely quilt finish! The gray on the front is so soothing...and the flannel on the back is so bright and fun. I love the contrast between the two.
