Maybe some people remember that I shared some
a LONG time ago.
When I say long, I REALLY mean long! ;-)
The blocks were supposed to be for a blanket for my little boy and I actually intended to give it to him for his first birthday.
Which was last year!
So this year when his second birthday came up I had just gotten a new sewing machine - which I had to test so I would know whether I want to keep it. And really really wanted to get this whole thing finished.
So I did!
So I did!
Well, not quite yet. I could not quilt the blue squares yet, because some little
bugger sweet boy ;-) stole and hid my blue quilting thread.
He really seems to like all my crafty tools and material ... maybe I should just give that to him instead of a quilt ...
Now I gotta order new one - cause he does not tell me where he put it - to get everything done. *sigh*
Also I do not yet have a real clue how to finish the binding. I was thinking to just use bias tape - the slightly wider variety.
Can anyone tell me whether this is a really stupid idea?
To be honest, I really have no idea what I am doing here. I have read quite a bit about it ... but everone seems to do the binding differently somehow ...
And I wanna add a big thanks to
Without you, I surely would have never ever even thought about making a quilt.
So that I made this - and I am freakishly proud of myself that I did! - is pretty much thanks to you.
I know, it is not an I-spy-quilt. But now I know I can do it. And the I-spy-squares are still waiting to be used. ;-)
