First quilty finish of 2013

I made this quilt top back between Christmas and New Years but never had the time to quilt this one. The fabric is Bungle Jungle by Tim and Buck for Moda. It is quilted in a meander, I think it softens the boxy nature of it and is quilted with Met.ler Silk Finish 50 weight cotton in a variagated green and yellow. I previously used this thread in another quilt and did not like it. My machine and this thread do not get along and needless to say, what should have been a quick quilting took forever. Once I remembered I did not like it, it was too late to go back. I machine bound the quilt, which is still a work in progress for me. I used some leftovers to make the binding scrappy (love!). The quilt is roughly 40" x 50". This quilt is for one of the many babies that will enter our family this year and I am super excited to have this one finished 10 full weeks before the pending arrival! Once the baby makes his arrival, I will add a tag with his birth stats.
