Blue Skies All Done!

The Blue Skies quilt is done! Here are some pics of the quilting and binding. I ended up going with a swirl pattern for the quilting, and I'm really happy with how everything turned out. Not a pucker in sight!

I am also going to put a little blanket together for his older sister, so she isn't feeling forgotten.

Some days are better sewing days than other, unfortunately when I went to get the backing and binding fabric, I don't know where my head was. I bought twice the amount of binding fabric i needed. Instead of doubling the width of the binding to make a double binding, I doubled the double binding width! Yikes. To make matters worse I realized this AFTER I had sewn it on. I ended up rolling it twice to get to down to the right width. The edges of this quilt are darn near bullet proof now :) Oh well, lesson learned. Never try and rush through buying fabric, it never goes well.

I hope all involved like the finished product. I'm planning on getting it to the family week :) Thanks again for all of the fabric, I think its a darling quilt.

Happy Sewing,
