Finally have a finish
Yes, I finally have a finished project! Yeah!!
Seems like so long ago, (beginning of March) I decided to use up this fabric. It looks wonderful in my son's bedroom and he doesn't have rug so ... let's make a rug.
April showed up and I buckled down to finish this one. It got all quilted in the first week. Then what?
Do I add borders?
I didn't like it. Both of them. It made the project look like a baby quilt lying on the floor. So I had to think really hard about this and then, it dawn on me. Buttonhole stitches.
Not too bad, right? Well at least, his toes will be warmer when he gets out of bed. :^)
Here's a picture of the back so you can see the quilting.
It's suppose to be waves like a small river but you can only see them from the back. Which looks like muddy water lol.
Anywho! On to some more fun stuff.
I want to show you what I got in a little squishy envelope about two weeks ago. I was the lucky winner in a draw Julie (JulieKQuilts) had on her blog.
A beautiful batik FQ in my favorite colour (ah! Somebody knows me well!) It will be added to the package of batiks I won from Ellen (Little Jewel Quilts) last year. Soon I will be able to make a beautiful batik quilt. :^D
Julie also sent me a little charm. Oh! But the smallest and CUTEST charm I have EVER seen.
Thimble and scissors to show size of the charm which is only ONE inch. Precious! Thank you so much, Julie. I am thrilled to get one of these. The charm is hand made by Julie (another Julie) at Me and My Stitches. She has an incredible talent.
And now for the linky party:
