So I am finishing gifts and mailing just as if I were trying to make a Dec 25th deadline.
This is a Cat in the Hat quilt bound for great grand-daughters in Maryland. They already have a Berenstain Bears quilt in the same primary colors. This one will create a set for their twin beds.
|Another great kit from Nancy's Notions|
and quilted by the talented long arm of
Heather Spence Designs.
Here's the Berenstains Bears Quilt so we can see the set. I hope the bears and the cats get along!
|Now that I think about it, I reckon I didn't photograph|
this one after quilting and binding. I've been told it
looks great on the bed in Maryland.
Close-ups of the Cat in the Hat quilt. I really enjoy these kits from Nancy's Notions. The directions are clear, the fabrics wonderfully coordinated, and the colors are bright and true. It's a great way to create a kid's quilt -- especially with the specialty fabrics.
|The backing is the striped fabric that|
also appears as the final border on the front
Binding is a collection of scrap squares
sewed together to make a long strip.
In progress -- two more cross stitch crib blankets. Two more babies arriving in 2013.
