I finished the main part of the solid sample for the shop last night. Today I will go in and play with fabrics to choose a border. I really think I should put a border on it is definitely a crib size (toddler) quilt, but I think I'll have trouble finding something that doesn't take away from the feel this quilt has.
One of my friends asked how I would quilt it, and I'm thinking about embroidering each square with an animal or something boy/baby related in the same color thread as the square. This is a bit ambitious, but if I do the backing in the same bone color as the sashing then the back will look just as amazing as the front when it is finished.
While I was digging through my stash last night I found a pretty big piece of the Lush paintbox fabric (on the right). This looks so cute with the quilt that it is official, I really can't cut into this fabric. It is going into my "hope chest" until I figure out what to make with it to match the solid quilt. (I really hope that, when the time comes, I have a boy first so that these quilts/fabrics don't go to waste.)
