I finished the baby quilt commission! Well, I finished in last weekend, but it didn’t go through the wash until today. A quilt is finished only after it’s been washed. That’s when the details of the stitching show up!
The person who commissioned me LOVES it! WOOT! It’s 30 inches x 22 inches. She wanted it small and gender neutral, and I think the results are beautiful. The backing is a dark purple with light purple roses throughout.
It’s 6″ cut squares sewn in seven rows of five, a little less than half a yard for the backing, and I think about a quarter of a yard for the binding. It’s really very simple, a great starter quilt, and excellent for scraps.
Also, I had my hair trimmed today. The top is braided, the rest left loose. Oh, and yes, that’s my itty bitty sewing room.
Jasper approves of my haircut. I had to sort of shove him away when he started licking the sides of my head. He seems to enjoy the texture.
