It's Done!

My first quilting project is complete, as complete as it's going to be anyway.  I didn't do any fancy hand or machine stitching on it due to the fact that I was incapacitated for about 6 weeks and unable to sew.  I thought if I tried to do anything extra like that, the quilt would NEVER get done!  So my quilting-enthusiast friends, I ask your forgiveness for saying that I've quilted. :)

But here it is:


The top all sewn together with the lining.

The lining--in case it's hard to tell, it's just a pink sheet with a darker pink "ropey" stripe.

I also made the binding from the same sheet.  This was much cheaper than buying material, and I could get the lining, binding and backing all from the same source!  I paid about 170 rubles for the sheet, as opposed to at least 100 rubles/meter.

Backing and double binding sewn on.

My stitches got a lot bigger the further around the binding I went! :)


And finished at last!




I'm quite pleased with the finished product, and can't wait to wrap or cover my little lady with her quilt.  I just hope she waits another month to use her gift!

Beautiful! If I can ever finish my cross stitching project I've been working off and on for years, I would like to try a quilt. I'm proud of you for finishing it, even with all the obstacles you faced.

Thanks, ladies! I'm actually contemplating trying to get another one done for my friend who's due about the same time. Trying to decide if I can squeeze it in! I really enjoyed it.
