Pattern: Cheaper by the Dozen (uses 12 fat quarters)
Fabric: got it in a kit and don't remember, but someone recognized the floral print when I posted the top only.
Quilting: a friend who has just started quilting for others did this for me. She's quilted her own for about a year, but just now feels confident enough to quilt for others.
I usually bring the backing over for the binding, but did a separate binding for this one. Did "cheat" and machine stitch, but like the way the scallop looks with the quilting.
THis is the first one where I joined the ends of the binding so they fit snugly - rather than overlapping them. I really like how that came out and learned it from this tutorial:
Backing is from local quilt shop, but I learned that a delicate print doesn't show up. I often use sheets and when I pay for a backing I want to see it! WHen you're halfway across the room this just looks solid white.
My mother's birthday is next week. She's been hinting for a quilt, but has no idea this is coming. I tested the waters by giving her two table toppers for Mother's Day. She uses them all the time and shows them off to friends so she moved to tht top of the Quilt Worthy list! (She's VERY picky and I just wasn't sure until then.)
