Wild Things Quilt

A baby quilt for some friends from Stuttgart (Jon's BFF). 
They are now in Texas and the baby is about 6 or so months. Better late than never!
The fabrics are all stuff I had in my stash, the pattern is Thimble Blossoms, Wild Things. It was quilted by the lady in Montana. I have since done my own free motion quilting so I will most likely not send her baby-sized quilts again as I can now do them myself!
The backing is the same fabric I used on my Landofnod floor cushion knock offs here.
Did you gasp when you saw the picture below? The ugly Frankenstein stitches around the binding??  Oops. Should have used yellow thread and concealed my stitches but I'm not capable of pretty hand stitching:)  It's OK . I'm OK with it and can admit my talents don't lie* in hand sewing:) (**lay, lie?)

BTW...I love the yellow and I hope Jon's friend likes it. I giggled that you tried to correct your grammar and don't know for sure if it is wrong :) That is one of the reasons I love you.

Oh I was all excited because I thought it was going to be a 'Where the wild things are' quilt.
I really like it though- monsters just seemed like you to me though!The pattern is happy. Love the tag!

Lay, lie, does anyone really care??? I do believe it is lay though, not that I care, cause I don't.
I do love your quilt though. A lot. Not alot but a lot.
