Another pow wow

Well, my sewing machine is in the shop, again--this is the third time for the same problem.  I'm kinda wondering if my machine is dying...I sure hope not, because, dangit, sewing machines are expensive! 
So, I haven't been sewing, but I have been sorting and cutting scraps.  I've got a sore back and shoulders to go with my organized scraps.  But, I have finally taken the time to photograph quilts to share here.

Another baby quilt.  I LOVE this pattern.  I made a similar one almost exactly a year ago.  I have got to make this one bigger.  It goes together so quickly, and is fun for me.  
I used this super cute Heather Ross print for the backing...
 Bound in an older blue stripe.  I'm really into striped bindings lately.

I quilted it in concentric circles and I really love the look, but do not love the process.  It's fine once I'm out of the middle, but the center is kinda torturous for me.  So much shifting of quilt through the machine.

I too am really into striped binding lately, there's just something about the parallel lines or whatever. Congrats on your finish!

Gorgeous quilt, and I love the circular quilting on the angular pattern. Hope your machine isn't on its way out!

Sorry to hear about your machine! I had to retire my Bernina a couple of years ago and could not afford to replace it with another one. I spent weeks at my local machine shop sewing on all the models that were in my price range. It was a daunting challenge to find a moderately priced machine that would do everything I wanted and in my tight budget. I will keep my fingers crossed for you. PS I love striped bindings too,
