I'm sure you're all wondering if I got that quilt finished before Easter.... Of course I did! With a day or two to spare! I didn't have a chance to wash it though, so I ended up doing so in a laundromat about a mile from my sister's house, while we were back home for Easter!
Unfortunately though, it was really rainy and overcast the last day I was there. I had to part with the quilt then, so that my family can take it with them to the baby shower which is this coming weekend. I'm really not happy with that full on shot... I'm sending strict instructions that I should get approximately one photo of the baby on this quilt every month. :) One thing I am fond of? The way the dot backing fabric shows through the front in the light. It totally conveys the bubble-ness.
Here's the label. I wimped out on it. It's a fine point sharpie used directly on the backing fabric. No distortion or bleeding of it in the wash. I do heat set it with my iron, although I don't know if this actually does anything. I'm quite happy with the zig zags!!! I really should buy more of that fabric!!
Here is the pillow on top - you would totally have laughed at me during this photo shoot. My dad and brother-in-law were each holding an end of the quilt while I balanced the pillow in the middle (with the quilt horizontal)... I kept having them change the angle etc. lol. And for all of you wondering... my circles had very little fraying!
I'm a little sad to see this one go. I'm sure Chloe will love it (once she's born) and her mommy will be happy with it too. I hope it gets a lot of use... sending on instructions for it to be USED. No worries about spills or stains here, a well loved and used quilt is a happy quilt!
