Well that poor baby had to turn a year old and I had to totally destroy a different quilt but she did eventually get one – one that I hope she has for many years to come!
I have to start this post out with thanking Nicky! Just a couple days before I was to leave for Michigan I was in a panic about what color binding to put on this quilt. So, knowing that Nicky had great quilt taste, I got a hold of her on Skype, held my laptop up to the design wall and we discussed the best option for binding. She came up with this color – one that I hadn’t even thought of! Thank you Nicky!!!!!
So without further ado here are Sarah & JP aka Mom & Dad aka DIL & Son showing off the quilt at the party….
|Is that not the perfect color binding? See those creases in my jeans? Does anyone know how to get those out?|
I have to be honest and tell you I hand sewed the binding all the way to Michigan. Then it got too dark and I had to finish it the next morning at my girlfriend Foo’s house. Here are the shots we took the morning of the party:
|The quilting…straight line in a variegated pink thread|
|The back…Sugar & Spice by the Quilted Fish for Riley Blake. This shows the quilting a bit too!|
|The Roll Picture – mine “roll” pictures never look as modern as others….why is that?|
|All folded up & ready for the gift bag!!|
This quilt began as a part of the Clover & Violet Embroidery 101 Stitch & Quilt Along. I had so much fun working on this quilt and learned so very much!!!! I will certainly do another embroidery quilt again soon but first I have some other projects to work on.
This project is part of my Finish A Long list. Since I only had 2 items on the list I guess I am half way there. This week I am working on the tutorial and then I will see what I can get done on the other quilt on my FAL list. It was supposed to be a birthday present on the 17th of March – oops missed that!!!
Speaking of the Finish A Long….you might want to start thinking about the 1st and 2nd quarters. The 1st quarter will come to a close on March 31st and your plan of attack for the 2nd quarter will be due on April 7th. The 7 days in between those 2 dates will be chalked full of tutorials by some amazing people!! Just look at who will be posting tutorials this quarter:
