Holy smokes, a quilt started and finished in eight days! Granted, it was a very small quilt, but I am so impressed with myself for finishing something in a relatively short time frame. You have no idea. That never happens.
The binding for this baby was nearly the death of me. I must have just been missing my sewing mojo this week because I struggled with the binding and then with piecing block 5 in the jelly roll quilt-along.
Here are a few shots of the finished binding, pre-wash.
Those mitered corners are a little less than stellar.
After the quilt came out of the dryer. It's amazing how much washing really does hide so many of my free-motion mistakes.
Despite a request to gift this quilt (sorry Megan, but I will make you one just like it when you have a baby), I'll be keeping this for baby #3 (that's not an announcement...just thinking ahead). I like how it turned out way too much to part with it. Maybe once I have more finished quilts under my belt I'll be able to make quilts and then give them away. Someday...someday.
