I finally finished binding this quilt before we headed off on our recent ski trip.
This quilt is for my eldest and is the third quilt I'd ever made. For some reason I got up to the binding and then put it on the shelf, where it lay languishing for almost a year.
The fabrics are all by David Walker for Free Spirit.
There are a few mistakes in it but none of them affect the quilt functioning as a quilt. In fact they show me how far my quilting skills have come, which is nice to know (no laurel-resting though, still a long way to go).
These windmills join quite nicely, as they are supposed to.
There are a few like this though - what on earth was I thinking about when I sewed these two together?
Oh, that'd explain it. Carry on. (source: Vanity Fair Italy)
My 6 year old loves the quilt and it has pride-of-place on his bed, which is all that matters. I know my years of having children who enjoy handmade things are limited, so I'm making the most of it.
Next up: finally quilted and with binding machine sewed on, this one just needs hand sewing to finish it off.
