    I don't know how the first wave of the SNW quilts passed me by, but after seeing everyone else's beautiful SNW quilts, I finally decided to make one too! I used a piece of stash fabric since I was experimenting, I also wanted to make a more soothing pastel quilt after working on several really bright ones.
    I'm happy with the result. I had a bit of a problem with the binding edge being a little wavy, it wasn't the border, I had blocked it, but I think the cotton lame fabric I used for the binding was the culprit. I laid the finished and wavy bound quilt flat on a table and did a running hand stitch almost in the binding ditch and gave it a tug to tighten up the waves, it worked like a charm!
