I know it’s hard to believe, but I’m not going to post about my still in progress iSpy quilts. (My multiple iSpy blog posts here, here, here, here, and finally, here!)
Today I received the long-awaited phone call that my Ten Little Things quilt for a little someone special was finished. Turns out that someone that lives about 2 miles from me quilts on her regular ‘ole sewing machine – not on a long arm machine. And she’s very inexpensive! I paid $45 for a basic meandering stitch, which is all I wanted for this project. (Which is good, because that’s the only design she does!) Tonight was a super busy night, so I wasn’t able to start on the binding, but I’m hoping to get to it soon.
Here are a few pictures. Instead of taking them inside in my craft room with odd shadows and not great lighting, I took these outside on the deck after the sun had started to set. It makes the fabric look a little darker than it actually is, but you get the idea. I haven’t cut the excess batting/backing off yet…I was just too excited to share it!
She stitched it with a gradient blue thread, and I think it’s perfect! I hope the recipient likes it, too!
That turned out really good! Love the gradient thread for the long arm quilting
Looks good. Variegated thread is my “go to” thread. I just love the added dimension.
Variegated! Thanks Mary!! That’s the word I was looking for, but came up with gradient instead!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!
What a cute quilt, love the quilting too!
Thanks Amy! And thanks for stopping by!
That quilt is so cute! And the quilting is also really pretty. Both of you did a great job.
Thank you, Amie!
And you can’t go wrong with a quilter that charges $45! 🙂
This finished up adorable! I think I may borrow your idea soon, for a charity quilt! I rarely do a quilt that is not more neutral sashing. This is wonderful!
Thanks, Lori! These fabrics were just too fun to do a neutral sashing for, but they needed some framing and I thought this was the best option. I’m very pleased with how it turned out. Once I bind it, I’ll take another picture in more natural light so you ladies can really see the colors.
