Today, I'm sharing the quilt I made for my new nephew Otis. The last time I wrote about this baby quilt, we talked about the quilting. Lines, wishbones, loopy loos, stippling -- so many great options! I wanted the quilting to accentuate the bunting so in the end, I chose a combination of echo lines, loopy loos and stippling. The quilting was done with Aurifil 2021 (I don't even have to check the colour card or the bottom of the spool anymore to remember the number - lol!). I left the bunting unquilted. I like that the bunting puffs up, but time will tell whether that was a good call. If it doesn't wear well with washing, I'll add some quilting.
Here is the finished A Banner Day for Otis. I'm so very pleased with how it turned out!

The fabric for the bunting cords, the backing and the binding is Red Clown Stripe by Michael Miller:
Originally, Otis looked a little 'under-whelmed' by his welcome gift.
