windmill whimsy 2

I don’t think I’ll ever tire of this color combo! I think it’s perfect as a baby quilt, and especially perfect as it works equally as well for a boy or a girl, or when you need a gift for someone who may not be finding out what they’re having.

And of course I’m always happy when I can incorporate a bit of those Heather Ross goldfish!

I made this top last summer (as a repeat of my Windmill Whimsy quilt from way back) and posted about it here, and then, uh, apparently got stalled at the quilting part. Again, I’m making 2012 all about finishing older quilts, so this was next on the list, and I’m pleased to say it ending up being a quick finish. I did a good old meandering design on this one, since I love the all-over quilting on this design.

I used up some of the remaining printed squares for the backing, and then used this great Robert Kaufman Anne Kelle Remix dot print for the binding.

You know how sometimes dots as binding can go slightly askew? I think this one, with its scattered dots, is perfect as binding (and comes in several colors!).

I’m really happy with how this one turned out! And as an aside, look at all this sun in Vermont this weekend! Like so many, we’re experiencing an early (and warm!) Spring, and boy is it nice. Maybe not so great for quilt photography though…
