Finally!

This is one of those shameful WIPs that have been sitting around FORever, quilted but unbound.  The center is all that was left over from this quilt -- first round of ORB quilt-alongs.

I was afraid of the scalloped edge.  I wasn't quite sure how I wanted it to look.  And I was quite sure I was going to mess it up.  Yesterday, I bit the bullet and just did it.  It was an easy one to get off my list.  I don't love it.  The corners are too tight.  I should have made a rounder scallop.  I'm wishing I had done a little more on the long sides.  Now I'm even wishing I had interspersed some of the border fabric with the squares and made it look like the squares were breaking out of the box.  (Sigh)  However, it's done.  And it's off my list.  And it will snuggle a sweet baby girl very nicely. 

I can't even remember what fabric line this backing is from.  I think it was an old Robin Pandolph line, but I can't even recall.  It's just what was left of whatever fabrics I used for the front (and the other quilt).  Three cheers for a WIP that is no longer hanging over my head!!

Linking up with Amanda Jean's Finish it up Friday tomorrow!

I like it! It's the most unique and fancy quilt edge I have ever seen. Well done!

This is very pretty. I have some print similar to this backing. I think I will try a small quilt like yours since it looks so lovely. Thanks for sharing the photo.

It's sweet! There is a first for everything and I think you did a fine job with your fancy edge.
