Snowy Daisies is Finished

I worked like a fiend last weekend to finish the binding on this one. 
 I am so happy to have it finished and ready to gift next week!  
I will link up to Finish it up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts when the link is live 
and I have a minute.

I thought I would just show you the photos I took of the finished quilt.
I designed thus pattern
It us for sale in my ETSY shop

You are seeing it in all of it's crinkly post wash goodness!

My friend Kathy of Thread Bear Quilting did the quilting and I LOVE it!

See those Guising (Lizzy House) ghosts?  Love them too!

I think my favorite added fabric is this block with Sebastian from the Ghastlies! 
 Notice the cat rumps?

I just wrote on the back for the label.  

I used my signature stamp made by my friend Yuki too. 
 If you blow this up really HUGE you can see  teeny tiny Japanese characters 
in the lower left corner of the pinwheel. 
 That spells my name in Japanese.  She carved this out of stone for me! 
 What a wonderful friend!  
The pinwheel is the size of my thumbnail, maybe half an inch square.  
She is amazing.

I used the gluing technique to glue down the binding prior to hand stitching it in place.  
I sure do love that technique.  
Binding is really hard on my holding hand, not the stitching one and when it is all glued in place it is so much easier on my hand. 
 I was able to do all the binding in one 3.5 hour sitting.
 More importantly I was not crippled doing it!

So there you have it.  Snowy Daisies is complete and will be gifted next week.

My daughter is coming home from North Carolina tonight and I am so excited!  
We are going to spend all day Friday together.  I can't wait!  
She has a wedding to go to on Saturday so I will be trying to get that Christmas stocking finished.  Wish me luck with that.

What do you have planned for the weekend?

Snow Daisies came out just perfectly! The background fabric and the quilting motif plays well against the straight lines of the pattern. What a great wedding gift! said...

I love that pattern and your quilt! The colors are so peaceful and soothing and the quilting is fabulous! Great job.
