If you haven't yet, go to this post from last Friday and leave a comment to enter the drawing for some free goodies to celebrate my 500th post. Now onto post #501. :o)
My husband asked me if I could make a baby quilt for a lady that works with him in Turkey. I was able to get enough fabric from my stash to make the quilt but ran into a little problem when it came to the binding....arghhh!
I wish I would've intentionally made the binding scrappy but since I thought I had enough and didn't think I would be short, I had to get very creative. Ahhh, hindsight!! I was able to piece scraps together and make it work but it wouldn't win any prizes. It is a quilt to be used and loved and 'hopefully', the recipient's mommy won't see the flaws in the binding.
While I was quilting this quilt, my little granddaughter Emily needed a little babysitting while her mommy took a shower. These pictures are from about a month ago and she has since mastered sitting up and doesn't need this little seat anymore but with that being said, she is "grabbing" everything in sight. I doubt she'll be sitting on my sewing table from now on. Well, until she wants to sew something. I'm guessing that will be at least a few years from now. :o)
Do you see the collection on the shelf? She already stares at everything in this room and my paper crafting room. She can't focus. I think I give her eye-overload or something. lol
The quilt was given the (Emily) seal of approval!
This was the finished quilt...minus the slobber. lol The quilt is from a charm book my friend bought at Road to CA. It's a great quilt for charms but I used the same focus fabric in the center blocks and the border because I had enough. I had already used this fabric before so it was nice to try and use it up and make a little room (very little) for other fabric.
