A Custom Birthday Quilt
This last year, I was asked to make a quilt for someone that I'd done one for when her first grand daughter was turning one. Now, her second grand daughter has turned one and I'm late with the quilt due to holiday orders. Luckily, this lady is very kind and understanding and basically said, "No pressure, just make it bright and happy!" I automatically went to my stash and chose some of my favorite designer prints... and then ordered some more. Hey, I have a problem! It could be worse than fabric addiction!
I have a new long arm quilter now that mine moved away, and I must say I love the new lady too. She did a very good job and is pleasant and easy to work with. She quilted a butterfly pattern all over this one for me!
I had a hard time choosing binding, but in the end I went with a floral aqua print that is *super Rachel* if you know me. It just seemed to match and bring both sides together! I must say I'm happy with how this quilt turned out and I'm tempted to see if I could make a copy for my own couch! Some of my favorite prints are in this baby! I hope that it is well loved, because I sure loved making it.
Hopefully I'll be back sooner with more quilts to show you all!
This quilt was my final finish of 2014, what a busy year! I had two babies, and sold more quilts than I ever have before!! What a trip. I have a feeling that this year is going to be fun, with babies turning into toddlers, and with lots more projects in my head. Happy New Year everyone!
