I have finished a quilt (← NOT an April Fools joke). I gave details and showed a sneak peak of the quilting previously, and now it’s done! Glee!
I’m not great at coming up with creative names for quilts, so help me out. In the meantime, since the main fabric collection in it is Modern Whimsy, I’m calling it Baby Whimsy. Simple.
I got fancy with this one and hand stitched the binding. Usually I’m impatient and machine stitch it because I am so close to finishing and want to wash and snuggle the quilt likeNOW, but after this one, I’ve resolved to finish more bindings by hand. It is soothing and gives the quilt a special touch. It’s worth the extra time (even if you unintentionally attach the binding in such a way as to land seams on not one but TWO corners).
I’m donating this quilt to the Children’s Hospital of Colorado Heart Institute for their Little Hearts silent auction and fundraiser happening later this month. I hope it sells and raises a few bucks for the deserving heart patients at Children’s. (Ahem–speaking of raising money for Children’s Hospital of Colorado… might I trouble you once more to vote in the Vail Ski Challenge and help them $150,000? THANKS!!!)
It is all wrapped up and ready for me to deliver it TODAY. Yeow!!
P.S. I just realized something. This is my 13th quilt, and my first quilt of 2013! Weeeeeeird.
