Got my Scrap-Tastic quilt back from the quilter last week. Yay!
Thanks to the long weekend I was able to spend some quality time with the fam watching movies and working on hand stitching the binding. Love when I can combine my sewing time with family time. Makes me feel less guilty about my hobby, ya know?!
My girls were pretty funny, though. They kept asking when I was going to be done... Like it was a speedy process or something. At one point the youngest plopped herself right next to me, legs on top of my lap, all the while pulling the blanket closer to her chin the more I'd sew.
The minute the last stitch was put in my older daughter jumped up from the couch and said "I want to use it!". She promptly took it back to her spot on the couch and curled up for the rest of the afternoon.
So here it is in all it's crazy scrappy glory!
I should've named it "Everything But The Kitchen Sink" because there is seriously every kind of fabric in it--the good, the bad, and the extremely ugly! Even some squares from a bloggy friend. (Thanks anonymous friend!)
I love it in all it's craziness!!
For the back I chose to use solids.
There was SOOO much going on on the front that I thought the back needed to be less chaotic.
Here is a shot of the quilting detail.
Not my normal taste for quilting, but for some reason I'm liking it on this one. Who would've guessed...
