life list: baby quilt #2

Yea for marking something off the list!  And something fun!  Well, shouldn't they all be fun because otherwise what's the point?  But really, this probably kept me from totally losing my mind over the last few months.  I had an outlet. 

I was inspired by a quilt I saw on Pinterest (where else?) but tweaked it a bit.  The original was for a twin bed, had different colors, and was assembled in a slightly different way.  But I loved the modern feel of it.  Compared to Chicken's quilt, this one was more difficult regarding the piecing but easier when it came to the actual quilting.  It was also the first time I made my own binding.  It's definitely not perfect but I hear a perfect quilt is bad luck.  Perhaps one day there will be a finished nursery in which to show it off...  But I guess until then, you at least get to see what his color scheme will be.

Your quilt is beautiful! I didn't see your quilt beforehand, and have just made a zig-zag baby quilt myself, down to the orange binding: http://renewstuff.wordpress.com/2012/07/08/from-scratch-beginners-luck/
Maybe we were inspired by the same Pinterest pin?
