I was able to finish the quilting and get the binding done by the end of Sunday. I have to wrap it and get a card because my friend could have to leave work soon even though she's not due quite yet I'd like to be prepared incase.
I started quilting this with no plan, yikes! I started the border because I am comfortable with the paisley design but I didn't know how I was going to do the rest.
|I'm learning to add pebbles in areas that won't fit a paisley.|
I started the inner borders making figure 8's (I did get stuck a few times when I had to do them upside down - boy you should have seen the concentration on my face, I actually traced it with my fingers until I could get my brain around it)
|These are shots of the back so you can see the figure 8 design.|
|I decided to leave the larger block undone so they will pop up when the quilt is washed.|
|I put a 4 petal flower in the small block.|
|The completed quilt.|
|This is from the charm pack. I wrote on it with a thin Sharpie and set it with my iron.|
A little picture of Poppy to sign off with...
