Railway Baby - Nine Patch Quilt #2

Railway Baby is finished!
32" x 39"
 This is the second baby quilt I have completed from the nine-patch units I made up last year. (view the post with a quick-method for nine patch blocks here).
This was also my April finish goal for AYOLF - previously posted here.
I still prefer hand-stitching bindings, but this is the best result I have had with machine binding so far. I made it a bit smaller ( 1 7/8" I think), and it came out pretty sharp:-)
I love all the prints from this Layer Cake, and I love that I am able to complete three baby quilts from it, and I actually have scraps still leftover that could be made into a fourth :-)

The third baby quilt is a current work in progress, but it is going fast. I pieced the top by setting the remaining blocks on point, added a simple border, and it is currently on board Mr. Juki waiting for a final quilting decision! This is often a station in my quilt room where quilt progress is often 'stuck' for a bit - a glitch in the system so to speak. I do love this one though, I think best of the three:

  2. Such lovely colours for a baby quilt, ideal for a boy or a girl!

  3. The quilting is fantastic! Really adds to the setting. Great job!

  4. Love that quilt. a just the right size one for baby. I know just what you mean about progress coming to a halt when one has to decide how to quilt it. Thanks for linking to TGIFF!

  5. Super cute quilt. I love the quilted squares outside the squares. I have to say that binding looks great. I considered doing it but I see so many that go off and on but yours looks great. I just finished the binding by hand on mine. I am going to try machine binding one of these days.Did you mean you made the binding piece 1 7/8 wide?

  6. what an adorable quilt, love the striped sashing. well done on reaching your goal!
