This is my very favorite reason to sew. Two of my very dear friends are welcoming their first grandchild in the next few weeks, and I couldn't wait to make the baby a quilt.
I used Oliver & S City Weekend. It was a fat quarter bundle that I got a few years ago at QuiltMarket and have been hoarding away for just such a special occasion.
My husband doesn't like the quilts hung up on our fence, but I love it. It's just the right height for baby size quilts.

I have to say I am one of those who loves hand binding. It's very relaxing but it also builds up the excitement, as you know you're getting closer and closer to another finish.

Here are some of the other Square Dance versions that I've done. I have two others that I never took pictures of before I gifted them away.
