This Gave Me A Case Of The Giggles

I was messing around with E Cards and made this! I know exactly how it goes! You would be surprised how many people are confused by the fact that I’m a Guy and I Quilt!

Binding is On Miss A’s Quilt

Lakeville-20130720-00516

As I type this, the quilt of which we speak is in the dryer! I’m really excited to see it once all of the fabric once all of the sizing is washed out! I love a quilt out of the wash after I quilt it. The way it gets all crumpled and looks like something you want to cuddle up with on a stormy night while watching your favorite movie. In my case, Malice In Wonderland. However this quilt is not for me, so I digress.

For this quilt I chose to do a bright green binding just to make it more fun, and a little brighter. I was going to do a pink binding, but I think the green made it pop out more and just adds a sense of levity to the quilt. After all, it is for a toddler!

Quilting Is Done On Miss A’s Quilt

Lakeville-20130720-00515

It is official! The quilting is done on Miss A’s Quilt! I’m not sure about everyone else, but I feel rather accomplished. I decided to go with the zig-zag theme of the bargello pattern I did, and then in the border I just wanted some fun asymmetrical lines and angles. I wanted the border to contract the symmetry on the body of the quilt. All in all, I think I did a good job! I’m really happy I chose the blue thread, and I really enjoyed the way it came out. However, on a more comedic note, When Miss A’s mom saw me pinning the quilt, she asked about the backing. I chose a hideous flannel that has a plaid print on it. She asked if I ran out of matching fabric. I told her I chose this fabric for 3 reason. 1) I had it… 2) It’s super soft… 3) It’s going to be so ironic! Miss A is a super sassy toddler, so I feel like when she gets older she will appreciate the irony of it all! I hope so anyways!
