A Cute Checkerboard Finish



Just thought I would quickly share a fun little baby quilt I sewed up with some leftover strip sets I had laying around.




I created a checkerboard in the center from the scrappy bits and gave it a couple of thin borders in aqua and white.  I thought these solid borders were needed to provide some good definition between the center and the outside print.




I had just enough of this Kaffe Fassett Millifiori print for the outer boarder, binding and backing.  I think it finished it beautifully!




I know it is hard to see but I quilted it with a ruffled swirl free motion design. It really went together quickly and I really like the simplicity of it.  It has no home so it will just have to go up for sale in my Etsy shop.  I hope it finds a new home soon!

I love it! I'm newly obsessed with Kaffe and so saw the border and backing and said to myself, "Oooh... millifiori!" Lovely work.

I love the way the inner border frames it, and the simplicity of the piecework just makes me want to wrap up a little squishy bundle in it.
