I used the cotton lawn from Connecting Threads called Matsuri and organic cotton in white for the sashing. I've never worked with lawn, I found it to be a little slippery, but not too hard to work with. The weight is so light and should be perfect for a baby. The quilt will be for my son's teacher. I just found out she's pregnant and would like to get it her before school ends in a little over a week. I don't know if she's having a girl or boy, but thought this palette would work for either. Now to get it pinned and quilted.
