Friday Finish! - Houndstooth for Isaac!
this post. Isaac's mama fell in love with this pattern, so it was meant to be. Most people though this quilt was a lot bigger than it is... it's just regular 'ole baby sized (42 by 60 inches-ish). Those solid blocks are just over 3 inches square!
Fox and the Houndstooth by Robert Kaufman. Can anyone resist a fox with a houndstooth bow-tie? Not I, to be sure. For the quilting, I went with my old standby - diagonal lines - in aqua. It just seemed to work with this straightforward quilt top.
my last week's post about the two options for binding. I agree with all of you! The Kona Poppy was awesome, and if it had been staying at my house, you'd be seeing some different pics here! But the Kona Robin Egg is a favourite colour of Isaac's mama (it matches her KitchenAid mixer!), so it just seemed right for this one!
So happy to add another quilty to this special little family's collection!
P.S. Woot! I finally have a Friday Finish again - I'm linking up with Georgia Girl Quilts for TGIFF!
