Baby Morgan was born to a good friend of mine way back in June. I was CONVINCED she was having a boy so had in mind boy fabrics and was ready to quilt once the baby was born…but lo and behold, she had her second girl!!! Threw me for a loop and needed to go back to the drawing board. I decided to keep the American Jane Recess fabric I had already bought and added to it, Snippets and Look & Learn. I don’t usually use such bold colors, but I am really loving the way it came out. Tonight I finally finished hand sewing the binding on. For some reason I had some issues with the corners. I have no idea why, as I have never encountered the problem before, but it was tedious to fix. Here is a pic of me hand sewing the binding on to the backing of the quilt:
I am finally getting the hang of it. I learned how to make and sew binding from crazy mom quilts’ tutorial. It’s super easy to follow and the pics are very helpful. I had to double check my work with this quilt, but I think next time I’ll be able to make and sew the binding without following any direction.
Now that the quilt is quilted and bound, it’s ready to be washed to a)get rid of those baby blue quilting lines and b) make it all wrinkly and yummy. After that I’ll attach a label I plan on making using Printed Treasures printer fabric. I took an adorable picture of Morgan and her sister and added text to it using Picnik.
Anyhoo. Off to bed. I’m always up too late!
