quilt 05 is finished. a simple one. and a quick one. because my friend is moving away tomorrow. boo hoo. she's getting married in april so this was a pre-wedding gift. her favorite colour is yellow. and her fella's favorite colour is white. i wasn't super happy with my fabric selection. but once the binding was on everything came together. and now i am pleased with how it turned out.
the back of the quilt is a flannel. and i love the print. and the softness of it. and the main fabric on the front is a cotton/linen blend. something that i can't get enough of.
and the binding. oh, the binding. i am new to this whole quilting thing. as you know. i am not a very fast hand sewer. i hand sewed the one side on. but since i was working against the clock i needed a faster method. i had seen leslie's quilts. and i noticed that she used a machine to sew on the binding. and it looked good. so i sent her an email and she helped me out. and look at that binding. it worked. such a pleasant surprise.
i am still hand sewing the binding on quilt 04. and the fabric for quilt 06 is bought. and washed. and ready to be cut. and quilt 07 needs to be planned. and then i think i will take a little break. if i can. but i think it might be too late. i might already be addicted.
