Baby quilt quilted...now to bind...

 I finished quilting the baby quilt on Saturday. The panto is called Oriental Illusion, but I think it looks like the tops of palm trees, so I think it goes well with the jungle animal theme of the quilt.
 Now to bind it. I have border/back fabric left, but hate to waste it on binding since it is so cute. I have enough of the solid blue too, so might use that. Or I could do it scrappy....haven't decided yet.
 I love the border/back fabric and bought extra, so I have enough left to make something else with this theme. Any more nieces having boys? This is our third since November! He will make an appearance in about a month.
I had a great time spending Easter with my family yesterday. We also celebrated my Dad's birthday while we were all together. His birthday is today. Here he is with Mom and the two newest great grandchildren.

Today is my last day of Spring Break...hate to see it end, but better get busy and make the most of it!

I wouldn't use that cute fabric on the binding either. It would like nice with scrappy or the blue. A never ending baby stream in your family.......
