Seriously, this quilt was intense. And heavily quilted in a machine not quite meant to have fabric crammed down it's throat. But we've all been there, I told my machine. She made a fit about half way through and spewed some sort of oily goop on one of the white sections. I spanked her, took her apart, cleaned her out, then made her gorge on more fabric. I guess 60x60 is a lot for a machine who's throat is only 6". But she made it and I'm proud of her!
I wanted to be done with this quilt (tutorial here) so badly I considered mock binding it with the backing, which I love (a Tula Pink Prince Charming print), but I'd already put so much time into it that I couldn't bring myself to it. So I made a binding out of the scraps and there you go. I happen to love it! Binding it not my strength, so I'm just glad it turned out square. And as you know, snapping photos is also not my strength, but I tried. It was really windy, but the sun was shining. Unfortunately, it was just me and my iPad. Maybe I'll try a few more when my kids can help. Anyway, what do you think? I am very much in love with it and it reminds me of what quilting is about...creating a little part of you. Makes me hungry for more! I hope my family enjoys this quilt as much as I do and that it gets lots of love throughout the years!
