|CHUBBY CHICKS! QUILTED AND BOUND!|
and YES, I have put a label on the back,
but I can't show you just yet......
Yes folks!! I actually have a QUILT FINISHED for 2011!!!!!
Yes, I know! a long time coming:-) I completed the binding yesterday - all done on my machine using THIS method. If you have followed my blog for some time, you will know that I absolutely L.O.V.E. this method. It makes for a very child friendly and mummy friendly quilt too - goes in the wash with no problems and no fear of the binding coming adrift! Actually, I washed and tumble dried this quilt today - as I use cotton wadding, it was dry in no time! I added a colour catcher in the wash just in case, but there was no colour run so that's good! I like to wash my applique quilts before I hand them over, just to make sure my stitching stays where it is supposed to - plus on this one I had used a dark blue thread for the little chickee legs and I was worried that it would "blurr" but it's all good!!!
MH is delivering this one tomorrow so then I can show you the label!
So now what? Well, as I type I have the Royal Critters quilt on the sewing table - putting the sashing strips on tonight so who knows???? yet another 2011 finish might be on the horizon!!!
