Dark Batik Baby Quilt May OMG
It’s time to decide upon our May OMG project. We have oodles of projects to choose from since the second quarter list came out a month ago already. A pretty dark blue batik charm pack came into our lives via a Missouri Star Quilt Company sale. Just perfect enough for an Irish Chain baby quilt that needs Sue to hand quilt.
Such a Pretty Dark Blue Batik
The quilt top for this baby quilt came together very quickly back in April 2019. These pictures show some of the details of the fabric as well as the dark blue border we added to all four sides.
Dark Batik Layered and Waiting
This quilt top has been layered and pinned for 11 months awaiting Sue’s attention. The backing is a pretty blue swirly fabric that I barely remember, but I’ll share those details in the finish post. This wonderful UFO project is our May 2020 OMG project.

Sue chose a cute whale-shaped image to outline with her hand quilting. This month she will finish hand quilting the project, I’ll add some machine quilting to the borders, and we’ll add a binding. We’ll be linking this on Patty’s Elm Street Quilts linkup when it opens. It will also be a quarter two finish-along item once complete. This seems like a fairly easy to meet finish and goal for these 31 days, don’t you think?
