Clownin Around Baby Quilt

My first finish since the retreat, was actually a top I finished at retreat. I completed the blocks and put them all together for the Clownin' Around Baby Quilt. I used the Triple Treat Petite pattern from the Happy Hour book. Friday night I put the borders on.

This picture is a bit fuzzy, but you can see the perfect mitered lines I matched up. It was super simple as I used a glue stick to baste it and they didn't move a bit.

Sat. night and Sun. morning I quilted it with a red/green/blue/ yellow King Tut thread. When I got off work Sun. night I put the red stripy binding on it. It turned out really huge because of the borders, but I love how super cute it is. I have several friends having babies this year, so it will probably go to one of them. I'm also teaching this class in June at the shop, so for now it will be a sample.

It looks great Moneik! You'll have to do a tutorial on mitred corners for us next year.

I NEVER thought to glue baste corners for perfectly lined up miters. Great idea!!! The quilt looks fantastic! Some little baby will be very happy!

What a fabulous quilt. And I agree with everyone else about the mitered corners and using glue. That's a great tip!
