Once I had finished the blocks for my Summer Days quilt, the assembly was really quick.
I managed to get it all layered for quilting before I went away last weekend and I left it sitting on my sewing machine until yesterday afternoon when I finally had time to quilt it.
I did my usual machine quilting in an all over stipple design and it was surprisingly quick to do. For the binding, I chose a green print - I tried some reds and blues but found they dominated too much and took away from the blocks themselves. I think the green was better.
My niece hasn't had the baby yet - she won't tell us if it's going to be a boy or girl - but I think this quilt will fit either outcome.
I'm pleased with it and it was a really quick and easy project. I'll keep this pattern in mind next time I need a quilt in a hurry.
Until next time
P.S. To all those people in Boston or affected in some way by the bombings yesterday, my heart goes out to you. I'm still trying to get my head around why someone would do that?
