I’m getting close. So close. I was really considering sending this quilt out to a long-arm quilter, but I just wanted to finish it myself. I decided to go with simple, straight-ish lines. I didn’t want anything to detract from the billions of petals… really with the patterned fabric and the flowers I just didn’t want to overwhelm anything.
And there’s just something so great about the massive pile of fabric on the sewing table as I try to maneuver the quilt through the machine that makes me happy. I picked up some binding fabric last night and I’m ready to stitch it on.
It’s good to know already that she likes it, since she wanted to sit on it yesterday as I was quilting and it hung on the floor. That was after she figured out it was too big to be her “pretty pretty dress.” That’s up on Friday, since I’ve only got a few days to get the girls’ Easter dresses done.
