Thank-you all for your sweet comments about this quilt in my last post! You all made my day!
This last week, I've had limited use of the computer while my husbands parents have been visiting. Since my sewing/computer room switches to a guest room when we have company, I have not been keeping up on all your blogs as much as I like, but I will be back visiting soon!
To prepare for their visit, we moved my serger table and fabric shelf (which has wheels, thank-God!) out and moved the bed in.
They were gracious enough to allow me to use their room for sewing, and I am happy to have the storyteller completed. The quilting is random, including top stitching around each flower and center and free motion eiffel towers and flowers. Here's a close up of one of the eiffel towers. You have to look close since it's white on white.
I wanted this quilt to have lots of dimension, meaning there will be some things that pop out, but some things will have to be "found".
I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I finished the top and bottom with the points, but am happy with the way it ended up. I did have to bind this quilt completely by hand, my first time ever doing that. It was a little daunting at first, but flew by quickly as I made some progress. I'm very happy that process is done :).
Alrighty then, I should be back to visiting you all within the next week, so until then, I hope your days are as sweet as these little flowers I'm crocheting for an afghan I'm making! ***edited to add link for flower pattern (this link is for the pattern to the first round of the flower. Go to the next days post on Sarah's blog to get the next round, and so forth.)
