Finish it up Friday

This wasn't what I hoped to be showing today but at least it's a finish!

My daughter decided a couple of months ago she would like to make another quilt.  She planned how it would look ...



and then we went into the studio to pick fabrics ...




Well, if only I could choose my fabric as quickly as she did!  She then made up the front with the applique hearts and joined the squares together into a nine patch.  I then said that I would help join it all together as it included the 'If it could be bumpy' binding!  The part had me thinking awhile until I saw some giant ric rac in the local sewing shop.  Great in theory but not so easy in practice.  Whilst it worked to my daughter's liking it's not something I would do again!  She is delighted with her work and my finishing and it took pride of place in her room yesterday - what more could a Mum ask for?!! x

  1. Very cute little quilt, I'm sure your daughter is very proud of it. I made the mistake of using giant ric rac to finish a quilt,
    probably not something I'd try again, lol.

    1. Glad it wasn't just me finding the ric rac difficult! Thanks for popping by.
