Can you believe it is officially Spring?  Here in Minnesota, we have several weeks before all the snow is gone and the Daffodils start popping up, but at least the calendar is leading us in the right direction…

BABY QUILTS–Restyled

My daughter recently made an adorable cross-stitch baby blanket similar to this Dimensions Quilt

The cross stitch is printed on a white quilt.  It’s fun and easy (though time-consuming) to stitch!

The only problem…when you are done-the back is rather messy with stitches.

So we decided to remove the binding,

And a new backing, and a little more quilting (Aurifil 28wt cotton)  to hold the layers together….

And then add a new binding…Cross Stitch Baby Quilt

Adorable!  Way better than the original binding and back!

Baby Louis is going to love this!

What about YOU?  Have you ever made a cross-stitch quilt?

How did YOU bind it?

We’d LOVE to hear!
