I ran into a few issues - first of all, my father had recently given up his driving licence, so I'm now #1 or #2 "chauffeur" - when he "needs" to go to the library, or the bank, or wherever, I get a phone call, and everything gets dropped while I tend to dad's needs. Then, I was diagnosed with tendonitis in my shoulder and arm, making it very difficult to work on a growing quilt..... But, I persevered, and, one week late, got my quilt delivered. I was somewhat hampered by the tendonitis, and couldn't do the Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) that I was planning, so it ended up being Stitch-in-the-Ditch, but I'm hoping that the eventual recipient won't mind.
And now for the unveiling:
I placed small pinwheels in each of the 4 border strips - they were made using the 4 pink fabrics that I used for the Swoon blocks; I also used leftover strips of the Swoon fabrics for a scrappy binding. I used Warm and White cotton for the binding - I love the slightly vintage-y wrinkled look that it gives the quilt. I dropped off the quilt yesterday - with the line "Done is better than perfect"....!
