Done is done
With the help of Miss Hanky Panky anchoring me to my chair, threads were popped into the quilt center and the binding sewn on and down ... ... and this quilt is done! :o) Oh happy days, for sure.
..... and since I do the erky jerky stitching so well, included that on the hearts (thus turning a negative into a positive )....
.... and did some stipple with loopies and once washed and dried, it is oh so crinkly and lovely.
Now is the time to send this little quilt off to a wee child in Italy who was affected by the devastating earthquake early this year. All the donated quilts will be given to children in September at the start of their school year.
Pattern source: EQ6 software helped me make this design.
The top finished at 54-1/2" x 63-1/2" and once all quilted up, washed and dried, the quilt is now 50-1/2" x 59-1/2". A loss of 4" all around. Interesting, eh!
Have a great day!
