third time's the charm!
Well this is the third quilt I have completed and I am really pleased with how it turned out. All the stages seemed to work a lot more smoothly and I am especially happy with my binding and corners. I still need more practice with hand sewing the back of the binding, but all in all I can see a real improvement.
This quilt is destined for a baby girl in the US as a Mountain Baby Blanket. It is going to be a well travelled quilt - the fabric was won in a US based giveaway, came to the UK, was turned into a quilt and is headed back across the pond to the US once more!
This quilt was not on my list of things to do, but it was a niggle in the back of my head that would not go away - since Rachel first started her appeal for blankets I knew I would want to make one at some point, but I needed to wait until I felt my quilting was good enough for someone other than family to recieve. It is made with love, but also needed to be made well enough to withstand life with a baby!
