Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday.
I already post to WIP Wednesday, so I think it only logical to follow up with TGIFF.
(Partly because I forgot to post Melissa's finished quilt.)
Melissa picked out all of the fabrics, including the background. She picked the pattern. She arranged all of the blocks. I did all of the sewing.
There were a few blocks left over. She wanted a really long quilt. I had to intervene.
We compromised and put the extra blocks on the back.
I knew that I didn't want to do the quilting. I LOVE piecing tops. Not so much the quilting. SO, I took it to a local long arm quilter. We picked out a varigated thread and a circles pattern to contrast with all of the lines on the quilt.
(click on the picture to see the details - the quilting can really be seen on the back)
This is the first quilt that I sewed the binding on completely with the sewing machine. I picked out a decorative stitch and went to town. It went quickly and now my baby finally has a quilt. It only took a year. Once I got started. Her sisters each got a quilt when they were 4. Melissa is now 12. Bad mommy.
