I hope you all had a wonderful Easter on Sunday. It was just our immediate family and one of DD's friends for dinner. On Saturday we had a lacrosse game. We finally won a game and DS made 4 goals. That was pretty exciting too. On Monday I was leaving for a meeting and when I got home, my DH told me that the dog had gotten up on the stove and took the leftover ham and at the whole thing!!! Bummer! I was looking forward to leftovers. Stupid dog. This just reminds me again that I like cats better!!
I also got my Baby Baskets quilt back from the quilter on Monday! It is just stunning!! I don't have the binding on it yet but here are some photos for you.
LTW did a beautiful bow thing in the handle. I had her use a pink and brown varigated thread (Superior Threads) for the handle, the flowers in the basket and the borders.
You can see the outside border and the inside border quilting here.
The back is as beautiful as the front!
I really LOVE how these baskets came out.
In the negative pink space LTW used pink thread so it did not distract from the baskets.
I chose the flower patterns for the baskets and the negative space. I suggested something like what she chose for the handle. LTW did a little bow in the actual base of the basket and outlined the baskets too. She chose the border quilting.
I brought it to the CL group last night and everyone thought it was just fabulous! I do too. The baby it is intended for will be born April 28th so I need to get the binding done on it and get it labeled soon!! Please let me know what you think.
I am coming along nicely on the QFH too (aka the anniversary quilt). I have several rows finished. I need a night at home to actually work on it though. There is a lot of matching when I have to put the rows together so each row is taking quite a while, although I am liking how it is turning out. Maybe LTW will be able to quilt the h--- out of it? Hopefully it won't be a problem.
I really want to get this one done!
Anyone attending a tea party today? I am off to see if I can find one close by!!!
