I was able to do all of that and get home by noon. I was at both stores as soon as they opened, since they open an hour apart! Hopefully they see people line up outside like it is Black Friday on a normal basis. I may or may not have had my face pressed against the door/window.
As soon as I got home, I got to work pressing fabric, cutting strips, and finally sewing.
I quilted it in my favorite curves as soon as I had the top finished.
Then put the binding on it, and put it in the washer and dryer. I put the binding on by machine like I have been doing recently. It is fast and, I think, looks good.
The backing is a pink fabric that matches the pink in the quilt. I also used it for the binding since it looked so pretty
I buried the knots the next morning before taking the quilt to my friend.
I had not taken any finished pictures, so I asked her if she could be my quilt model. Her children love having their picture taken and all piled on top of her to take pictures. I took these with my not too stellar phone, so they are a little blurry at times but capture all the fun and excitement.
|I know this picture is blurry, but I love it so much!|
This quilt finished at 34"x 42" and was very happily received.
