The teal dot I used for the inner border are also used for the back. I love the way it sets off the colors in the stars. The colorful elephant border was also a perfect addition, and I am thrilled with the results!
I meander quilted the white backgrounds, then stitched around the centers, and added quilting around the motifs in the various centers. For the plain centers I plan on adding hearts, and a few other special motifs to make sure everything is well secured. I used Warm and Natural batting, Aurifil thread and lightweight stabilizer behind the knit baby outfits. For the binding I used the fabric in the stars for a fun scrappy binding.
I am excited to show you the project on my design wall today, but you'll have to wait until Feb. 15th! My Island Batik quilt uses the Caribbean Splash line and it is amazing, if I do say so myself! Make sure you check in that week - the Planes, Trains and Automobiles blog hop will be starting that Monday, and there are loads of great projects made from Island Batik that will be revealed!
