For weeks, all this quilt needed was the binding. What held me up was I wanted to make the edges of the quilt wavy with gentle curves. I agonized over how to do it for hours and days and weeks. Yesterday I decided my boarders weren't wide enough, and because it's a gift, messing it up was not an option! I settled for rounded corners, which I really love.
I think the Swoon block is a difficult block to quilt without using a long arm or without expert (i.e.: better than me) free motion quilting. I have seen some fabulously quilted Swoon quilts on line, all of which the quilting is way too advanced for little ol' me. I'm glad the straight line quilting looks just fine on this little lady.
I did some dense straight line quilting in the sashing. I think it gives the look of the quilt a little more something-something.
The bride has been patiently waiting for me to get it done. I can't wait to give it to her!
Once again, I forgot to put a label on it. I am so bad at not doing that.
Do you label all your quilts or just certain ones? Do I dare admit one reason I don't is because I fear my quilts will end up at a Goodwill? I always feel sorry for the people who lovingly make quilts, slap a label on them and then they get sent to Goodwill. It makes me sad...
Well, on that happy note. ;-) Have a great week! =D
