I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
You know how sometimes when you photograph a quilt, or other item, it looks "off" even though it isn't in real life?
Well, sometimes it really is the thing you're photographing.
I've pressed, steamed, stretched, and squished and I can't get these waves to budge. It happened in three or four places. I'm not quite sure how they got there but they were there before adding the border and binding. Something to do with the way I sewed the triangles/string rows.
Other than that I like the little quilt a lot. The only thing I'd change is to do the binding in white. I think the rest of the quilt, even though it's made from scraps, has a uniformity and crispness that should have been carried through to the binding, which was made from leftover scraps of binding from other quilts. Next time.
I have a five year old niece, and I think she and her dollies will find a good home for this quilt.
I've also finished the doll quilt for the swap. I'll show some pictures of it after I know the recipient has received it.
