Thanks so much for everyone's supportive comments on my last post...I love how many of you observed that even though I am swamped that I sound very happy. And you would be right! I am happy! I especially needed to remember that today when I have a house full of sick toddlers and one sick hubby to contend with... As my co-worker observed "you are probably going to wish you were at work today..." why, whatever could he mean?
Well, regardless of the sick I am finishing up this simple quilt for Miss O. She is to take it to daycare with her so I needed it to be especially comforting...for me that is...I'm sure she wouldn't recognize designer quilting fabric from a diaper! I thought of sending her with the sheep, but, this is my last baby and I just needed to know I am leaving her with a special something from me. So - I did it - I cut into the Midwest Modern Fuschia yardage I've been hoarding for a special day. Mmmm cutting into a much beloved fabric for an offspring - now THAT is a mother's love for you!
I used a Kona solid for the back and was going to do basic lines but got bored. Instead I went a little crazy with wavy lines and added some random flubbing. I just love that type of quilted texture!
I'm thinking it looks like seaweed. There is a summer thought if I ever had one. I am almost finished with the binding, which, for the sake of time I chose to do by machine. I know, not my fav technique, but on the other hand probably wise as a handsewn binding may not hold up as well in daycare anyway! Sigh, thank goodness O will be 5 minutes down the road from me...I will miss her so much!
