....about this quilt is it is done! Well those crows on watermelon slices do make me smile!
These blocks were from a long time ago block swap. I do mean long ago as in years and years! Was a sewing group with some sweet gals I belonged too. Beginner to long time stitchers. We just had fun!
I have sewn up the top two times! Each time just laying aside then taking apart! Last time which was go number three is what you see!!
Not all the fabrics used were cotton, some poly blends! Maybe if I was a pro quilter could have made it behave better and end product look better. It is not ugly and still cute. Was thinking will be our picnic quilt. I just pinned it to the vintage quilt for a pic. DH likes it hung up.. go figure, sweet man thinks all my projects are wall worthy!;-)
Two things I did different from my normal way of doing this stuff...not that what I do is the RIGHT WAY just my way!
1.quilted and washed before binding. No more!
2. my binding was cut WOF not with grain of fabric as I have always done!
So yes there is a couple 'flappy' looking sides there!
Just saying did not work well for me. If works for you great!
I am not going to stress over this kinda stuff anymore. It what it is and still can enjoy it!
So on to next UFO project....more watermelon slices!!!
Lord the number of UFOs hiding in here is amazing!!!!
