Say that three times fast.
Pop the champagne, I finished my second quilt. Don't peek too closely at my craftsmanship (especially the binding), but oh, this one was fun. I just cut some strips that I liked and put them all together. For the back I framed a piece of fuschia flowers with some of the brown flowers from the front. It's a gift for a little baby girl who is due in just a few weeks. I don't think she'll fuss over the wonky binding or a crooked strip here or there. I can't say it's perfect, but I'm sure that it's one of a kind. I'm not sending it until I know her name and birthday and can make her a little patch for the corner.
Nearly all of the fabrics are Kaffe Fassett's, because I simply love his crazy, bright flowers. There's an Amy Butler green in there and a Jennifer Pagnelli pink and orange stripe. I am terrible at getting baby gifts finished on time, usually because I get so involved in the planning, the gathering, the starting and not so good at the finishing. But oh, it's so satisfying to finish something, isn't it?
