baby ohio star

It's snowing. Again! And very, very cold so I decided a day of letting everyone do what they like best (which means I get to sew without feeling guilty) was the way to go :)

I had this little Ohio star quilt top finished for quite some time but for some reason I could not decide on the backing and quilting. Until this morning, that is. I raided my stash and found enough yellow and green minky for the backing and before I knew it I had the quilt all basted and ready for quilting.

I went with simple straight line quilting about 1" apart. It gives the quilt a lovely texture without making it too stiff. I washed and dried it right away and I'm so in love with how perfectly soft and warm it is.

See? just the right amount of crinkles (in my opinion:)).

Finished size of this quilt is 36" x 36".

How is your Saturday going? Hope you're having a lovely time, too. Svetlana
