slice of ruby quilt

I am so excited to have finished this ruby baby quilt this week! I have to thank Kelly for swapping me the ruby strips already sewn together. All I had to do was cut them to size, and add the sashing & I had a quilt front! As soon as the backing came I quilted it up in a loopy style, so fun & easy! Can you spot the little special touch I quilted in it?

 This was also the first time I machine bound a project & I am very happy with how it turned out! I know now that, the small stack of baby quilts that need to be bound, can be done in a quarter of the time it usually takes me to hand bind them!
 Quilting in this loopy style makes it's easy to write something special into the quilt. In this one I quilted a little "love" in the top right hand corner!
                                Linking up to Amanda & finish it up friday.

Have a great weekend & happy sewing!
