Well, July is fast approaching and she was gone this week at Girls Camp, with our church, so I decided to get it finished up :)
I have to confess I cried and cried as I basted it...like the sobbing kind that you don't want anyone to catch you doing. I can't believe that the little baby who would sit on my pillow and sing her sweet baby songs as I tried to get 5 more minutes of sleep is going off to college. I am really not a very sentimental person, but man, I cried HARD! ..oh no, I am going to start again! I'd better show you my pictures :)
I decided to do a sampling of quilting styles on each block, leaving the turquoise unquilted.
Every other block was stippled.
Sorry this picture is so washed out. You can only see half of the quilt in this shot as the quilt is pretty big. The majority of the back is cream minky with a stripe of color along one long edge of the back.
I am thinking now that I am going to go get some matching turquoise pearl cotton and do a big stitch along the sashing and borders. We shall see :)
I got this baby bound this morning, not quite before the girls got home from camp :p I finished it off with another quilt over the top of it so she couldn't see what I was doing. I watched The Vow while I was stitching :)
I am going to be linking this up with Elizabeth and SHOW OFF FRIDAY over at a Pieceful Life :), Sew & Tell Friday with AmyLouWho, Sew Many Ways Find a Friend Friday and Sarah over at The Fabric Addict for CAN I GET A WHOOP WHOOP???
