Yea!!! I actually finished the top about 2 weeks ago. It was so unbelievably hot here for over a week, we are talking 100 degrees and no ac, that there was no way I could bring myself to quilt it! Just the thought of sitting at my machine with a quilt on my lap was enough to drive me insane. So, I put it aside for a little while.
On Monday it was finally not sweltering so I got this baby out. I basted and quilted it all in one afternoon!!! Crazy!!!! Once I start on something it drives me nuts until it's finished, so having this sucker sit there untouched for 2 weeks was grating on me! :) The girls were playing so nicely so I just kept going. I sewed the binding on yesterday.
The characters are so fun!! Adelaide calls it the "princess blanklet"! I don't have the heart to correct the blanket part, I just love all of the words they say just a little off when they are little! :)
I quilted two lines in the inside of the little frame that surrounds the fussy cut center and then stippled the rest of the quilt. It's so nice and crinkly. I didn't want to obstruct the fussy cut characters so I left those unquilted.
I have already started another quilt, I had to do something while I put this one aside. :) I have no idea why the quilts are appealing to me so much lately but I know we will be super snuggly here this winter!!!
Again the fabric used in this quilt is 1001 peeps by Lizzy House.
I used kona ash and PFD for the sashing.
The pattern is fussy fairytales by Kate Conklin.
