The Boat House Baby Quilt Finish

I'm excited to share this baby quilt finish with you today! This one was super fun and very fast. It is on my Q2 FAL list as #14.

Isn't it cute?! I used the Moda Love quilt pattern - the charm pack version. The fabric is The Boat House by Sweetwater for Moda.

I had so much fun with the quilting for this one. I did straight lines pivoting on the diagonal. I love the texture and movement it makes in the quilt - especially how it all points to the center.

Here's another shot of the quilting and my fun binding fabric. I will definitely have to use this quilting idea again.

Here you can see a shot of the back along with the binding and the front. This flag print is so fun for the back! It's interesting without being overwhelming. As this was a pretty specific commission quilt none of this fabric was stash. It was fun to buy a few new things and play with a line I've been eyeing for a while for this sweet baby boy.
