So, I took a quilting class at Whipstitch a couple of weeks ago and I learned all the quilting secrets that alluded me during this disaster.
And I made this!I put on the binding by HAND!!! It took soooo long. That is the way the teacher taught us to do it and I decided I would do this quilt the *right* way. But I am seriously considering doing the rest of my quilts the *wrong* way...
Here is the back. I know usually the back is plain - but I didn't have enough fabric and I didn't want to waste the fabric I did have - so I used up some left over squares.
:). Also, I called myself designing a pattern before I made the quilt - but when I was putting it together it just didn't *feel* right... Too much white space... not enough white space. So I rearranged it until I got the feeling I wanted. It was kind of like putting together a puzzle.
I still have a few more things I need to do to her room before she gets here. So, I am off to Target and Lowes. More pictures of her room are coming soon!
