As I mentioned in my post a couple of weeks ago, this little quilt top was an antique shop find for only ten dollars! It was well made, and in very good condition with no rips or stains, and all it needed was a little TLC to finish it up.
The top was only 32 inches square, so I decided to add a border to it, which makes it 38 inches finished. The Kona Navy really is perfect with it. How could it not be with all of those shades of blue?
I was able to pull the Kona Navy, and all of the backing and binding fabrics from stash as well to finish it off. I love when I can finish a quilt without buying more fabric. That's always a little victory for me!
This binding fabric has to be one of my favorite parts of the quilt. The print is a tiny snowball and nine patch pattern in shades of blue, and the shade is pretty darn close to the star point chambray fabric- perfect!
It was such an honor to be able to finish this treasure from the past, and it will be a perfect quilt to donate to a preemie little boy!
