I’m so pleased to have my daughter’s birthday quilt returned home from the quilter. And I just love how Paula from Rabbit’s Patch Quilting has quilted it for me. I had a couple of requests, but the rest was up to her. As it is for a gift, I can’t show the quilt in all it’s glory yet – but here are a couple of peeks.
My job today was to machine stitch the binding on. I know I carefully measured it when I prepared the binding – but this quilt is big, and I was terrified that I would run out of the binding before I got to the end. That didn’t happen, of course. Now I have to fold it over, hand stitch it down, and add the label. And I’ve got a week to get it done – so I should have plenty of time to get this last part of the process finished.
We are having a Birthday Lunch for my daughter’s 50th birthday next week, and I will present her with her new quilt then. Nicky had some input with the colours and design so I’m sure she will love it.
