Anyone remember, about a thousand years ago, that I started a quilt for Aidan’s room? I got to the point of needing to bind it here which was over 6 months ago. I noticed that I started this thing almost a year ago…11 months for a quilt? Geez, procrastinate much? I finally got around to binding it last night. I know I didn’t do it right but it worked and is now washed and on Aidan’s bed. I even whipped up a little pillow case for her pillow. It looks so cute on her bed and she loves it! I showed it to her and Ryan today and Ryan asked her if she liked her new blanket. She corrected him, “It’s a quilt, Daddy.” Too smart for her own good, this one.
I love the puckery look of a just washed quilt. Don’t you?
Folded over to show the back side. Here’s my design board to remind you of what I used:
All the fabrics but the green dotted one are from Joel Dewberry’s line, Aviary, in the “Bloom” color pallette. I can’t remember what line the green dotted fabric is from (in hindsight, I wish I’d gone with one of the greens in the Aviary Line…oh well). I had it professionally quilted by a seller I found on eBay. Sadly, I can’t find her contact information any longer. The quilting is amazing! It’s an abstract floral pattern and looks fabulous. We’ll see how Aidan enjoys sleeping under her new quilt tonight.
