Summer Beach Quilt Finished!
My summer beach quilt is finally quilted and ready to be shipped off to it's new owner and it makes me a little sad to see it go. It was so much fun to make, and turned out to be so colorful and happy.
I quilted it with a daisy pattern
and backed it with some Cream Apron from the Marmalade collection. I had alot of problems with the backing on this one. Usually I baste my quilts on a wall, but this time I decided to baste it on the floor and it didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped. And maybe I'm getting too old, but crouched down on the floor for hours was really painful! I'm considering sending my quilts off to be professionally basted : )
I used my left over jelly roll to make a scrappy binding which turned out really cute because it was so colorful and whimsical already. Anyway, I hope the new owner loves this quilt as much as I do!
