Baby Quilt, FO



Finally the baby quilt is done (unless I decide to do more ties). The baby is sitting up already! This started as a baby futon, but I didn't buy enough backing fabric to made the borders quite as wide as I wanted with the mitered corners, so it became a fat quilt with bound edges.

I love the flower fabric and picked the sashiko blocks to represent the flowers. The hanging wisteria mon in the center belonged to my father's side of the family. The crane is a classic design (one who folds a thousand paper cranes will have their heart's desire come true) and the mirrored bass clefs are for the fact that both parents are very musical.
