|Made with Aneela Hoey's Sherbet Pips- Moda|
Anna and I have made her first quilt together. She sewed all the squares together, I added the border, and it went off to my finished tops pile. You can read about her working on it here. The hand quilting was finished this last week.
I added Xs and Ox for hugs and kisses inspired by the block print,
straight lines for the edging, and hearts for the border.
The hearts were made from a template from a cousin's wedding favor tag. My grandma said, as any true quilter would, "Oooh that would make a great applique heart." And so it did in on another quilt and as a hand quilted border here. It makes *my* heart happy.
I love the scarves as the border and Anna's favorite print as the backing, the pink doggies.
So I guess four people efforts went into this quilt. Such as when our resident diapered quilter-in-training finding unique quilting approaches in scissors. Now didn't that look lovely.
I showed Anna what Zoe had done to it after I fixed it and she just laughed. You can read my freak out post here. Of course there is one tiny hole I missed that will get patched up soon with her favorite doggie fabric. This quilt was worth the extra effort and time. She looks happy with it and that is all that matters.
