Somehow, I popped it in to the mail yesterday!
I found it so hard to create a quilt with the color choices of someone else when I really do not like the way they work together. I hope she will be happy with it.
Improvised "pick-up sticks" blocks joined and hung on my design wall
Mom's color choices:
basted and ready for quilting
Quilted with my walking foot, on my Babylock
& ready to have the edges squared off...
Ready for binding...
(I decided on white for binding & created pieced 2 1/2" strips.)
Binding sewn in place... to rear of quilt- ready to be
wrapped around to front for final machine attachment
label ready to be sewn in place...
Before shipping, I washed the quilt twice in the same dreft I had used to prewash the fabrics and batting before I began the project.
I hope Mom will get her package next week and know it was quilted with love...
Welcome to the world Kira!!!
