Well it's been awhile between finished quilts but I finished the binding on this beauty during the week. The baby girl it is intended for isn't due till November so I am nice and early although November will be here before we know it at the rate 2013 is zipping past us!
So I did one giant spiral for the quilting. And I learnt that even though one can pin a quilt together AND spray baste it, going in one direction the whole time is going to make the backing slip.... At first I was thinking argggggg! Have to sew another one, not good enough for this new baby! But then I showed it to a few people in real life and on FB and they didn't notice. Sometimes non quilters don't see the mistakes quilters see I suppose. Or are they being polite?
So it measures 35 by 47 inches, I'm really pleased with it. I'd like to do a whole range like this, blue to green to yellow or just dark blue to light blue or in greens or yellow to orange to red?? Oh the possibilities!
