My first new home finish

The last day in the dreary apartment I put on the binding of this baby quilt, surrounded by boxes. After the move and unpacking most of the boxes I stitched the binding down, so this is my first official new home finish! I'm not ready to show pictures of the new home yet, there is still to much to do. But I can show you this finish. Because I will be giving it to baby Daniel this Sunday! My friend brought this little wonder into the world last week when we were busy packing and unpacking! I blogged about the top earlier here.

I couldn't be happier with this finish. I love the color scheme and the light and dark contrast, I love my versatile HST's (Half Square Triangles), I love the size, but what I love most is the binding. This fabric was bought, once upon a time, to make clothing. I don't remember what I had in mind, but isn't it lovely as a binding! I wish I would've bought more, but I have enough left to bind at least one other quilt.

This quilt was made entirely from my stash (from which I could make at least 10 more, sshhht) and inspired by a quilt on pinterest which I seem to have lost unfortunately, but made it from memory. The backing is made out of bigger pieces from my stash. The quilting was done by home machine and with a light grey thread, following the diamonds in the quilt.

Now I'm of to order an iron on name!
See you soon (with pics of the new home)
