I hope you are okay with still another post on this quilt. It arrived back from the quilter this week, and I had to take some photos. It really is one of my favorite quilts of all time.
There are so many of my favorite fabrics in this quilt. I think I know either the designer, manufacturer or collection for every piece of fabric included (and in most cases I can name all of the above)! Some of these fabrics were from quilts we love and use in our family, and some are from pieces in my stash that I was saving for "perfect projects."
Within 30 minutes of unpacking this I had the binding machine-stitched around the edges. I think I'll be binding it before my other quilts on the binding "to do" list!
I used a fun print from Joel Dewberry's Notting Hill collection for the backing (got it on sale at a really good price). And I decided to go with my scrappy binding...it's been really fun to see the fun fabric combinations!
I decided a fun, "not too busy" all-over pattern would be best for this, and I'm really happy with how it turned out!
Now all that is left is to finish hand-stitching the binding and to put it in the wash for that "crinkly" look. Then this quilt will be staying in my family room and hopefully being used every day!

By the way, I have to give a shout out to Abby who did the machine quilting. She was wonderful. She has terrific rates (.01 an inch for all edge-to-edge designs) and has a 72 hour turn around time.
Thanks so very much for stopping by!
