Oh my goodness! Just discovered that I didn't post this - it was supposed to go out the night before last. Oh well, here it is tonight! You have already seen the finished product but you might as well see this too. Still love this quilt!
I am doing a happy dance. Funny thing about my quilts. As soon as I have someone in mind for a quilt it becomes theirs and no matter how much I like it I could never keep it - especially if I have developed any level of fondness for the recipient!
And it is just as well as I am SO PLEASED WITH THIS ONE!
Firstly, I love the colours. And the turtles and whales.
Secondly I am so delighted that the picture in my head translated to the fabric! It doesn't always!
Thirdly I quilted this one by FMQing wavy lines all across it
and while it is not perfect, I am really happy with it.
Happy enough to be comfortable with giving it away.
I have included three pictures close up of the darker bottom section in the hope that you can see the quilting.
I have the other ocean dreaming quilt to do and I am not at all wary about doing it now.
Do love those whales.
Now advice please - what colour binding? Still to the blue or go with that apricotty orange you can see there, or maybe even the limey green. Any suggestions please?
Till next time............happy stitching!
