Here it is, my lovely lone star quilt for my niece. I know I already showed it, but it looks better now, better lighting, better with a husband behind it!
I got up the courage and washed and dried it (I want it to be launderable, no soaking it in the tub or hanging it out to dry, I want it thrown in the wash because it gets so much love).
I know now firsthand the wrinkles everyone mentioned when you wash it for the first time (I hadn't prewashed my fabric). I like it! Looks cozy, ready to wrap up in.
I love how the label is camouflaged (Hey, I almost spelled that right the first time! Just forgot the 'u').
I can't get over the back. It's my favorite part.
Rolling it up to get it sent on its way to a lovely 12 year old!
From her aunt! Me!!
I had some extra fabric and 2 extra diamonds, so I made some pillowcases to go along with the quilt. To make the bed cohesive if she'd like to. They're identical. Diamond on the front, yellow on the back.
So, I need a little help from my friends. I'm working this out, but struggling with it. I made the giant pinwheel for the center of my GillyWhig quilt. My question is, do I put the small pinwheels around it in a rainbow pattern...
or random pattern...
Thoughts? Ideas? I just want it to look the awesomest it can!
See you soon!
(with more ideas for this quilt hopefully!)
