And, I love it!
This was my first attempt at patchwork. My first attempt using batting, my first attempt quilting and my first binding. Overall, I am very pleased with the quilt. I keep wrapping her in it to go to sleep, and I think she likes it! I am smitten with the colors and how the binding came out. I quilted in the ditch, and it almost came out straight – I had to fudge it a tiny bit in some places, but Sophie does not seem to mind. The back is a wonderfully soft, white chenille.
I did learn quite a bit making this quilt. Most importantly, I learned not cut the backing and the batting the same size as the quilt top thinking you are maximizing time, energy and fabric, for contents will shift and you will have to then cut the quilt top…. and, that is just a hard cut to make.
So to you my Sophie Rose, with love from Mommy, your (and my) first quilt.
And, I must thank Candice of Daffodilhill Too. The quilt was inspired by her and much of the fabric came from her etsy shop.
