Ready for my Mom

Just a quick update and a little sneak-peak.

As already shared, the top of Julia’s baptism quilt is DONE!

And now, the back with its label is also DONE!  WooHoo!  And I’ll just brag: the label is awesome!  Here’s a sneak peak of it:

Hee!  I love the back of this quilt just as much as I love the front!  The stems do have flowers on them, and each flower is part of the label.  It’s kind of like the label I did for Elena’s …And Everything Nice:

Since there is a lot of steam-a-seam and satin stitching on this label I’m hoping it doesn’t cause my Mom too much trouble.  She should be visiting me next week and I’ll deliver the top & back to her then and then be demanding it back in just a short 3 weeks when I visit her so I can bind it and put it in the Austin Area Quilt Guild’s Show & Sale!

OH, and *thanks SO much* to a friend for that great blue batik on the back — she gave me 2 yards of it and it is Perfect!  The green batik then is the 2 yards I bought for the border at a sale and that was just too bright and blotchy for the front.  In true Project Runway fashion, I made it work…eventually!

  1. Can’t wait to see the finished product!

  2. […] The squares sat in my sewing room for 2 years before they finally came out again, ready to be made into a quilt. In the intervening time, I spotted a quilt that would serve as my inspiration for the setting, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. I detailed that inspiration and some other thoughts on making this quilt in posts here, here and here. […]
