Ok, so that’s a totally lame name for a quilt, especially when there is only one turtle print and the monkeys are totally shafted without any mention. But whatever.
I’m done! This quilt… gave me gray hair. I kept running out of thread, but I did a loose loopy quilting all over it, so I’m not sure why I used so much. Actually, I have a guess- the 2 (almost 3!) year old spent a lot of time sitting at my machine when I wasn’t around, and I kept finding thread all over. I’m thinking she sat there pulling the thread out until she got bored.
As promised, this quilt got super soft brown minkee backing. I got a huge pucker in it, though, and had to rip out a ton of stitching and do the section over again. Now it looks great, so I’m glad that the extra time was put in to fix it. I couldn’t find anything in-stash that was exciting for the binding, so I just stuck with the green solid. And I am glad I did!
When I draped the quilt over our porch railing to take a picture, I really fell in love with the simplicity of this quilt. It is easy on the eyes, it is so soft, and it is a great size for babies. I’m glad I did it!
Kacie, you may now start pushing.
