Little Boy Blue Batiks II


I was SO excited this week when I counted up finished quilts and WIPs and discovered I need only one more quilt top for my goal of 15 quilts, 9 for boys, by Christmas (or preferably, if I can pull it off, by Thanksgiving). The 6 girl quilts are all done. In fact, I finished 7. I hadn't been counting. Now two of the boy quilts are completely done.

This one took up just about all the rest of the blue batik leftovers in my stash. Good reason to rebuild the stash when I get done with this project.

I had enough leftover 2.5-inch strips I'd cut from a once 2-yard piece after finishing the top, I decided to go ahead and use the rest as binding, even though I like my bindings to be just a bit wider. I'm not disappointed at all in how the binding turned out, and I still have about four more feet of 2.5-inch strip!

    1. Thank you, Judy! I will have to rebuild my blue batik stash after this year because I've pretty much exhausted the whole supply!

    1. Thank you, Andrea! Just one more top to piece, but six more finished tops need to be sandwiched and quilted. I am making progress though! Can't wait to see your blue projects!
