I love how hand quilting gives you that instant 'out of the wash' look to the quilt. It makes the quilt feel all soft and snuggly. I have used a solid binding in similar tone as I didn't want it to stand out as such. I wanted the geometry of the flying geese to be the main focus and the hand quilted lines to accentuate the flowing movement of the flying geese.
I wished I had made it in a bigger size so I could keep it for myself but a baby size is a good way to test a new design. I can't wait to make a throw size at some stage next year. Might have to rethink about hand quilting it but who knows... I might be insane enough to just do it lol!
