I have been puttering away with the hand-sewing on this quilt's binding for a few weeks now. It's mundane & boring, and uninspiring or else it may have been finished sooner. It's for my 3 year old's new twin bed. The above picture is the quilt's back, which is mostly the polar bear fabric, and a few diesel train squares. These fabrics (ie., trains & polar bears) were his choice. The challenge was for me to make them into a semi-cohesive quilt.
I really hate the machine quilting. I had someone do it for me. She didn't really say that there'd be stars EVERYWHERE, which bugs me. I also had hoped that the antique trains on the front that I painstakingly framed out would be quilted nicer - like perhaps to show them off better, and not just have those stupid stars all over them. Frusterating!...
The quilt will work; my son does like it. So I cannot complain too much. It is a project that is DONE.
It was hard to get a picture of the entire quilt - poor lighting, the bed is not in his room yet & the little sister really wanted to be on it!! Over on my other family blog are a couple other pictures of the back of the quilt - they include pictures of our family's newest addition(s) - go see!! We got 2 cats this week -
