....or is the the last quilt of 2010 - done?
I finished the binding of this quilt at 3:00AM on 1/1/11 (isn't that a cool date!) but did most of the construction (!) in 2010. It will eventually be sent to my DD and her family....
I say "her family" because she requested that ALL of their names be on the label of the quilt. Big Label! 5 names + G'ma and 2010(date).... so I decided not to have a label....instead I incorporated all the information into the quilt.
The back is actually a pale yellow..I just enhanced it so you could see the hand quilting better. I roughly outlined all the equipment on the front and then just "winged it" on the sides and borders of the pictures.
Little background: Originally, I sewed the top without the solid blue strips and corner blocks. After deciding it was really too narrow, I added those and used the yellow as the outside border. The blue really made it come alive. It measures 41" x 56".
So this is my first completed quilt, and the easiest, in Myra's PhD challenge. Now onto the next one..!
