Baby play mat - finished!

Last weekend, this little linen and minky baby play mat was nearly finished, and now it is done and dusted.  I finished hand stitching down the binding, and gave the quilt a good wash.


I also made a simple strap which co-ordinates with the binding, in case this little quilt wants to go travelling.  All I needed for the strap was a little extra of the binding fabric, a scrap of batting to give it body, and a wee bit of velcro to fasten.   It took all of 15 minutes to make, but I really think it adds to the usefulness of this item.


Now this quilt is finished, clean, and stashed away (out of cat reach) ready for me to give it to Cathy at  our stitch group meeting this week.


Linking up with:

Plum and June Better Off Thread Fresh Poppy Design

and, of course, Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.

Minky is so fun and snuggly. My daughter has a minky blanket that we got as a baby shower gift, and she sleeps with it every night. So cozy!

What an adorable blanket! I have yet to sew with minky! Will definitely have to give it a try.

This is exquisite - beautiful for baby's skin on both sides of the play mat, and I love that strap that holds it together! Genius.
