[completed] sidney the snail baby quilt

sidney the snail
Altogether too early this morning, I finished the Sidney the Snail baby quilt by attaching the green and orange binding. The quilt finishes at 34 x 35 inches, which makes it definitely a baby quilt. 

I tucked a "craft the pain away" label into the edge of the binding, which I think looks really cute and more subtle than just stitching it on. My new friend suggested that I use some orange in the binding to pick up the oranges in the paisley fabrics. I think that was a great idea!

The entire quilt was made using fabrics from my stash! I didn't purchase anything for this quilt, which felt great. I still have lots of the paisley fabrics left over, so you might see them again. I chose a green print for the backing. In person, you can clearly see all the quilting lines - the spiral in the shell, and then the organic (ie, not straight) lines across the yellow.

 Here is a closeup of the quilting, so you can see how "organic" it really is. I used my darning foot and free-motion quilted all of the spiral, and then used the walking foot to do the straight(ish) lines.

Overall, this quilt was quick and fun to complete!
