Baby Quilt Take 2

You know there are some projects that just don't turn out the way you envision them. I had about 3 different plans for this blanket before I actually was happy with the results.

I ended up taking off the satin binding and just doing a regular quilt binding.  I sewed it to the front and then hand stitched it to the back.  It is more time consuming, but I am always happier with the results when I take the time to do it this way.

I decided to stitch the baby's name on some twill tape to create a little tag on the back.  I liked the personal touch that it added to the quilt.   I am so glad that I am finally finished with this quilt.

Well, it looks wonderful. :) I love that tag, too. It does really add a personalized, hand-sewn feel to it.
