Description

I am in the process of making this quilt as a special present for my sisters 40th birthday. It is going to be an adaptation of the Sunkissed  Summer Squares quilt on the Moda Bakeshop sight.

8 February 2013

Have now finsihed the back of the quilt and sewn all the strips together for the binding. Next time to put it together.

After much deliberation and a chat with my mom, I have decided to call this quilt Fabulous 40. So this evening I designed and started embroidering my label. I think I will put some sort of border to it. Just need to sleep on that idea.

2 hours later and 3 become 1. I have basted and tacked quilt top to wadding and back. Now just have to wait till after half term to quilt. My friend has very kindly said I can use her Husqvarna to quilt it. Getting rather excited to see the end result.

Last night the last of the binding was completed and now so is the quilt. I am hoping for a sunny day to take a photo before I send it off to my sister.

Kirsten has her quilt and LOVES it. yah! Posted on Friday for delivery Saturday and it didn't arrive. Panic!!!! Probably due to the enormous amount of snow up North. But got there this morning so I can now breathe again.

You are making great progress on this little lovely! Keep up the good work! LOVE the back as well. She can flip it over if she's in a quiet mood or just peek underneath when she's in bed for a little surprise.

Such a pretty quilt! I use these blocks a lot too and they work well with so many fabrics. You did a great job pairing up the fabrics.

Terryt1955 that was my thinking with the back. So she has a quiet side and a busy side
