With the birthday being tomorrow I've finished just in the nick of time. This was one of my longest projects and admittedly, if it's long, it may not get finished. But having a little nose over your shoulder asking when it's going to be ready is a good motivation.
I initially planned a lot more hand embroidery, but realistically it was going to take too long.
I love how the free motion quilting on the borders turned out. The bulk of the quilt is stippled.
Have you seen the Leah Day tutorials on free motion quilting on Youtube? So very, very helpful!
I allowed the birthday girl to choose the flannel backing. What else does a 3 about to be 4 year old girl choose but pink fairies?
The matching cushion may not be finished, but considering I spent hours lastnight at the local hospital emergency department with a post fall, head injured, concussed and vomiting five year old I think I'm off the hook.
She's fine, by the way - God answered my prayers yet again and she is her chirpy old self today.
