The Love Quilt is Done

love-quilt-001love-quilt-backThe Love Quilt is done!!!  I used two Flirtations charm packs from Moda and then bought solid red, brown, pink and natural muslin to box around the squares.  The backing is solid natural muslin and then a row of the other colors for that extra little pretty 🙂

lovequilt-bindingNot too crazy about the binding as I think the print is too large and would have looked better with smaller dots but I’m leaving it.  I actually hand stitched the binding down instead of doing the decorative stitch that I usually do and I was happy with how that turned out.

or is everyone having a hard time blogging these days?  Is it the weather or what?  I want to post something everyday but am hard pressed to find anything worthwhile to talk about.

Life is rolling along gently and that’s a good thing.  Oldest daughter is winding down her senior year with prom, banquets and she had her final drill team show this past week-end.  She’s bottom row, middle.  springshow09-041
