I finished the baby quilt! And, another little project with the scraps (I'll show the extra project a little later).
|The 'front' of the quilt.|
As I previously mentioned, I wanted to try and create an abstract representation of the seaside, and sun, and birds flying. It's ok, although there are numerous things I would tweak (color choices, some sizing of the curves). So, I created a simple striped back, using child-friendly fabrics. That way it's fully reversible!

I was going with an outdoors/animal theme for this side. I used two layers of batting because I wanted the quilt to be kind of puffy, although I'm not sure how much I actually like it. I was just thinking that in Florida it's kinda hot...not a huge demand for quilts...could be a playmat, too?

I quilted all over with horizontal wavy lines. It represents wind, water, and goes well with horizontal stripes. Winning all around! I used a bit of wee wander for the binding, and love how it complemented both sides of the quilt!
|Quilt or log?|
All in all, this was a quick quilt to put together, and I really enjoyed the curved piecing. I like that it's reversible, and I like the colors for a boy quilt. Do I sound like I'm trying to convince myself? There are definitely things I'd change on a future model, but I'm happy with this one, and proud to send it onto it's new home.
