Isabella's quilt finished!!!!October 20, 2011
I can proudly say I have finally finished Isabella's 'big girl' quilt!!!! Hooray!! I started this quilt just before Christmas last year and have slowly been putting it together.
I free form quilted it on my machine - my first attempt. Although this was labourious and hard on the forearms, it was worth it in the end! The texture of the quilt is lovely and the stippled look really suits the design.
The quilt design is by Sarah Fielke from The Last Piece. The fabrics are a mix of designers which I spent much time choosing from several suppliers in the States.
I made 7 metres of 'scrappy' binding (using up leftover pieces from the quilt) to edge the quilt.
I actually ended up doing some unpicking and lengethening of the quilt as I was not happy with the length (annoying but necessary after I had spent so much time on it - would not want to look at it for the next ten years and not be completely happy with it).
The quilt looks lovely on Isabella's recycled bed (that her Daddy put together for her 3rd birthday).
You can read more about this quilt and watch how it came together by clicking on "Isabella's quilt" in my tag section.
So now that this one is finally finished, I can move onto my next quilting project....something for this little person...
I'm officially halfway through today! We won't find out the sex so a unisex little cradle quilt to begin with I think, then when baby arrives I can have some fun with choosing fabrics for a cot quilt.
I'm sharing today over at Kootoyoo.
