I was quite chuffed when we were done and I can’t wait until next week when Steve takes Aidan for the afternoon so I can spend it at the quilting shop sewing it all together under the watchful eyes of people who know what they’re doing. I’d hate to get this far and screw it up! I’m so excited so keep an eye out next week for the finished product.
The quilt is actually starting to look like a quilt now. I added a pretty border around the edges (man I hated cutting all those damn little rectangles) then took it to my local quilting lady to give me a hand putting it all together. I bought some cotton batting (with enough left over for another project that I have in the works… I know I’m hopeless) and we clamped it all onto a table nice and tight and began pinning the layers together with special bent quilting safety pins.
