Where does one begin when one has taken 47
different pictures of one's doll quilt?
I guess, first with the binding.
Holy Binding Question, Batman!
No idea you would have such passionate opinions on
orange, red, and black.
If you'd only get that excited about my cooking
I might be able to become the next Julia Child!!!
See?, how you're holding me back???!!!
Well, I was already sold on the orange.
I'm glad so many of you agreed.
Second, was a toss up between the red dot and black.
And I must say.....the red dot totally rocks!
Word to the wise, however.....dots on the bias
are not for the anal types out there.
Good thing that doesn't apply to me!
My swap partner shall get the red dot and I shall keep the Orange for myself, because Orange is the color of the moment at my house.
I took my idea from this large full size quilt by Threaded Pear.
I've always wanted to make it.
Well, now I've made TWO. :)
For the backs of the quilts I decided to just use leftover strips and whatever was hanging around my sewing area.
I did a striped backing for my partner and for mine I threw in some leftover love from my orange quilt.
I didn't put the obligatory quilt label on the back because I thought if she gets tired of one side, she can flip it to the other!
I know....two for one!
What a deal!
And now you know it's going to a "She".
AND it's going "Down Under".
That's all I'm saying.
And on that riveting note
I shall walk away from this post
and leave you with 62 more pictures
that I just can't seem to delete.
