This is the last of my "thank you" quilts ... and it goes to my former boss at the company I left last year ... she was fantastically supportive over the past year as I "found myself". She has also recently resigned and is taking some time off, so this is for her early morning cup of tea on the balcony as the sun rises.
I first made this quilt for me ... and while I don't carry it around with me, I have to admit, I don't go to sleep at night without it around my shoulders! I just LOVE the scraps and stripes against the white!
The back is a simple stripe of green prints.
And I found a cute little polka-dot fabric at JoAnns' for the binding ... oh, and now you can see my machine sewn binding ... I keep promising myself I will try hand sewing one ... but it's always on the "next" quilt ;-).
Quilted with a meandering pattern ... I really went for a tight quilting, which maximizes the krinkly effect, particularly with the white sateen fabric.
And ... for the first time, I'm sewing them faster than I'm delivering them ... these two are waiting to be presented to their new owners ...
Thanks for all your advice on balancing quilting with so many other demands! I have decided to get the new machine ... though I am going to wait for a few months until our budget gets back in order ... can't wait!
Hope you have all had equally productive weeks!
All the best
