The Polka Dot Garden has been finished--wa-hoo! The Man of the Place has been obsessed with watching the first season of Lost that a friend sent, so I've been able to sit by his side and sew down the binding first, and the label second. I even did a little embroidery on the label (no big deal, though).
Here's a close up of a block--you might be able to see a little of the quilting
And here's how the back turned out. You might noticed that I used up all the leftover scraps from the front--and that's how the Scrap Queen rolls!The only wrinkle was, um, a wrinkle. There was a long crease that got quilted into the back. And yes, I could have painstakingly pulled out the quilting and started over... if I was working for Martha Stewart or something... but I'm not. So.... wa-hoo! The Polka Dot Garden is finished!I also made a little progress on Sleep Baby Sleep. I still have no idea where it's going to wind up, seeing how the baby's room it was originally meant for is now (without changing tenants) home to a fourteen-year-old who prefers ninjas to bunnies.
Happy Birthday Chris
