Batik baby quilt, again


Amidst the house-cleaning today, I managed to quilt the little batik baby quilt - just a simple large meander with suns thrown in. I used a variegated thread, which doesn't show much in the photo but adds a nice touch to the actual quilt. 


Just as well I finally got around to quilting this piece, as my SIL did finally manage to have her baby (a girl, Celia) yesterday...  (I confess, as they live in the US, I had always intended for my mother, who is visiting at the moment, to take the quilt home with her and mail it from there, so actually, I would have finished it whether or not Celia had chosen to make an appearance yet.)


Someone posted a comment asking about the backing - I used this lovely oriental print, partly because it sort of went with the front and partly because, I confess, I had enough of it in the house. I think this was a gift from my friend LisaJo.  I'm sure she'll correct me if I'm wrong...

I hope to be meeting my potential customer very soon. She owns a shop and she has shown interest to sell my baby quilts - using batik only. Looks like a batiky 2012 for me.
