It was my best intention to knit while watching the Superbowl yesterday but that so didn’t happen. We watched the game over at a friend’s house and between touchdowns, commercials, and a kick-ass half time show I was making sure Kira didn’t eat to many brownies from the dessert table. Not a single stitch was completed. However while the little one napped before the game, I was able to finish a quilt!! First one for the year (and many to come)!!
This one is for my dearest friend May’s new (7 months old) niece. I’m so proud of the quilt but even prouder that it’s actually done and before she graduates college.
Check out the backing fabric! Which, don’t laugh, I found at Joann’s.
Could it be any more perfect?
And I’ve never bound a quilt with white before. I wasn’t even sure it was “allowed”. I know you’re laughing but I was honestly expecting the quilting police to show up. But it pops so nicely and looks so crisp against the pinks and reds.
And I don’t know if you can see it but there are white (tone on tone) hearts on the fabric. I’m so happy with how this came together, considering I broke the cardinal rule and bought all the various fabric components from different places at different times.
Ok, I’m off to make another one for another special baby that arrived this past Saturday. A boy this time. What until you see the colors for that one.
Oh, and I almost forgot…the pattern for this quilt can be found here.
What did you get done or not done this weekend?
