finished quilting and binding baby's quilt this past weekend. don't mind sadie's creepy ghost hand in this picture...she is in a phase where she MUST be in every picture taken.
i love it! except for those two blocks in the middleish...where the flower placement is almost exactly the same. how the hay did that happen? and why did i not notice until it was quilted? there are always those renegade blocks that end up in the wrong places, even when you check multiple times. grr.
i quilted it with my free motion foot on my sewing machine...and it's not that great of a quilting job, but i really just wanted to finish it and i have no patience and my arms were getting tired so in some places it's a bit sloppy. i figure, who really cares? not me.
the fabrics are:
green polka dots: Ta Dot in celery - Michael Miller
pink polka dots: from Joann's Plain and Fancy Stonehill Collection
flowered fabric: same as above
aqua: from my stash
yellow: Sweet Candy Stripe in lemon drop by Urban Chiks for Moda Fabrics
backing: Sandi Henderson's Pink Petal Party
i LOVE the backing fabric...i originally bought it to back sadie's quilt, but decided it went better with this quilt.
sadie of course had to give it a test run.
off topic: wow, i just hit the 250th follower mark! you guys are so super cool. I still can't believe anyone wants to read my blatherings, but thanks for sticking around and for all the love you give my lil blog!
