A baby quilt in lovely primary hues for an old friend of mine. This customer requested a zigzag meander that would help blend both the patterns in the fabric and the color choices, and asked that I sew on her binding so she could hand-finish herself. This quilt was a joy to sew and I am looking forward to doing more work for this customer in the future!
