picnic anyone?

It's done!  Remember when I dropped it off on Sunday?  Most longarm quilters take months to finish a quilt, but 48 hours after I dropped it off, it was ready and in my eager hands.  I will now always use Bluebonnet Star Quilting for my quilts!

The front of the binding was machine sewn on for me, but the back still needed to be hand sewn.  I was so excited to see the quilt done, I finished it in less than a day.

Once the binding was done, I threw it in the washing machine.  Since I didn't prewash the fabric, I was anxious to see what magic happened when I washed and dried it.  When I took it out of the dryer, it was beautiful and all puckered up.  It now has a vintage look that I just love.

 


I absolutely love it and I can't wait to get started on another one!
