My fox now has a nose

I finally got around to quilting and binding my into the woods baby quilt.

I decided to back it with minky so I didn't use batting. I was very worried about the minky as I have seen so many people talking about how hard it is to work with on the net.
I used spray baste and a few pins and it was fine.... I was fine..... I can do anything as long as I take my time and concentrate (positive thinking)

I tried a zig-zag binding because I have heard you shouldnt hand sew the binding on baby quilts. I am not really happy with it. I know I need more practice but I still think I would prefer to hand sew my bindings. It really is my favourite step.

Now my fox finally has his nose. I step I choose to complete after quilting and binding. Dont ask what goes through my head sometimes. I quilted squares around the  fox about three inches apart.

It is such a warm and cuddly quilt. My 22 year old brother has already tested it out and I am sure he would claim it if it was bigger. Now I have another person on my list of people who need quilts.
