The sashing, borders, and binding colors our daughter chose from my stash turned out well.
I adore the nooks and crannies of a cotton-batting hand-quilted quilt after is has been machine washed and dried. The texture is sublime.
It is worth it to cut the binding on the bias- it behaves so nicely afterwards!
Folding it up for now... it will be under the Christmas tree for this dear girl:
So lovely! What a lucky girl :) So impressed by your mad quilting skills! I can spend a month just thinking about starting a project, and look at what you've accomplished!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Erin! She asks me for it every night... but knows she will need to wait another 23 days to put it on her bed. *wink*
It was a great project, but I think I will stick to knitting for the next few weeks!
Oh my goodness! It's absolutely beautiful! You did a fantastic job. I love the colors and how everything was made from scraps, this quilt is beautiful and full of memories! Way to go!ReplyDelete

My favorite part of it is the memories, too!
