Finished Quilt

Finished the binding on this quilt this morning!

 

 












  I used double warm and white batting.  In all the gray area's and prints I used a variegated gray and white thread and in the tan area's I used a bone colored thread.  

It's really heavily quilted!!  

....and my dearest Toby who is 5 cranked the wheel to my Longarm quilting machine really...really... tight....well.... I didn't know about it until I went to advance to the next row!  I couldn't believe how tight my quilt was.  So what happened, is it created a bit of a ripple and some yucky pleats on the back....yes pleats and NO I'm not picking out!  I'm completely fine with it....it's my own quilt. ;o)

I'm so glad I finished this quilt up!  It was long over due!  This will be on the cover of a pattern along with this quilt
Hope everyone has a great day!  It's sunny here in the Northwest today!

Wow! Polka dot binding - be still my heart! Why did you use double batting though?

Hehe - little "helpers" ! Good thing it was your own, so you didn't have to fret about it. :) Just think of the times in future years when you do re-see those pleats and they make you smile when you remember your little guy at this moment in time. Fun!

You've got to love the little helping hands around the house haven't you. It just means you'll have to do another one (with no help) for shows when your pattern is released, so what colours/fabrics would that one be I wonder ;o)

Am working on a quilt for my grandson and my daughter loves the border on this quilt. Would love more information on the name of this quilt, and where I could purchase a pattern and also the ruler, since I am guessing that is what you used to do the border?? Thank you so much!!
