It’s a Happy Day! Happy Diamond quilt day! It’s finished and I’m just so pleased with it. Actually, I think I’m more pleased that I actually finished something. The only other quilt I completed, someone else quilted it and put the binding on. So, I’m proud of myself for getting it from start to finish AND it didn’t take me forever.
I found that I really enjoy just about every part of the quilt making process. I didn’t even mind the basting part, but I know that’s because I wasn’t crawling around on the floor (not a pretty sight!).
One of the things I struggled with in the beginning was keeping my seams at 1/4″. About halfway thru, I found a 1/4″ foot for my machine and boy, did that help! If you don’t have one for your machine, I highly recommend it. My Dad always said the right tools make a job so much easier and it is so true.
This quilt is so playful, with all the bright colors and the crisp white background. And that backing! I drool whenever I see it……..
I did the binding in the same fabric as the backing, because I had enough and it works. Actually, any of the bright colors would have been nice, or even a multiple color binding. There are lots of options with this quilt.
My sister keeps asking me who I’m making this quilt for. I didn’t make it for any specific person, but someone will come along sometime that will benefit from this quilt. Meanwhile, it’s gonna make me smile every time I see it!
