Blue and Green Squares Finished.

I finished sewing down the binding and the label for this quilt on the weekend. It has been sitting all quilted since here just waiting to be finished. It really is straight, looks wonky in this photo due to my dodgy photography. I took this shot standing on the trampoline leaning over the quilt on the grass. As you do.

I mixed up two blue spotty fabrics for the binding.

A close up of the stippling....

As I was taking these shots Grace came out to see what I was doing. She then took this photo of me holding up the quilt.

And then I took a shot of her using the quilt as a superhero cape! Complete with purple dress up high heels! I hope the child who recieves this will get as much joy from it. ;)

Great quilt! Your photography stance sounds familiar. I really wish you could've seen me photographing your RR flimsy hanging off the balcony!

Such a pretty quilt! I love the way the light hits it when your daughter is holding it. Could it be the super powers reflecting back in the camera???? Yes, I think it could be.

What an absolutely lovely quilt: I adore the colours and the pattern in combination. Bravo!

What a cool, summery-water feeling quilt. Should surely brighten a child's day!
Cheers - Shari
