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!
