FINALLY…My Valentines quilt is finished and without a moment to spare. I had the binding on by 10 pm, threw it in the wash, and took it out of the drier at 11:56. The goal was to have it finished by tomorrow and I did it! GO ME!
I finished quilting it yesterday afternoon, and wasn’t sure that I liked it. This was the first time I tried my hand at stippling. The first evening I started quilting it I was happy with the way it was looking, but after my machine came back from the shop, I never could get back into the pattern I had going the fist day.
I have to admit that after removing it from the drier and seeing all it’s wrinkly crinkly goodness I was in love with it. I can’t even tell that the quilting is “off”.
I have been trying to come up with a name for this quilt (I still need to label it). I was thinking about “Seeing Red” because 1-it’s V-day quilt (red) and 2-With all the issues I had with it I was seeing red! Haven’t made a final decision though…anyone have a suggestion?
Anyway, here is a few pic. I decided to do a scrappy border on this one. I was going to do an all red plaid border, but I wanted to use the 4 other strips I had that match, so I cut 3 plaid strips to add to the other 4 and alternated them…I LOVE IT!
