After several months of working on this quilt on-and-off...it's finally done!
This is actually the first quilt I've ever completed. (This bad boy is still sitting in my craft room closet. Waiting to be quilted. 2.5 years later. Yikes!) I pieced, basted, quilted, and bound it all on my own. I definitely made a lot of mistakes and may have committed a few quilting atrocities along the way, but it's still cute. :)
I got the idea for the strip design from Film in the Fridge, if you're interested in making one.
I also did a self-binding...that's how my mom likes to finish her quilts. (And I was feeling way too lazy to cut binding strips anyway.) Make it & Love it has a good post about self-binding, although I did mine a bit different.
I got it washed up last night, so it's all crinkly and soft...just waiting for my little guy to make his grand entrance into the world.
Speaking of baby--I've lined up several guest posts for November/December while I take a little blog break for maternity leave. I'm sure I'll pop in every now and then, but I hope you'll show my guest bloggers some love. (8 days until my due date!!!)
