FO: Friday FINALLY




Back in April when my sewing machine broke I was just about the sew the binding together for my "Who's Hungry?" quilt. Now finally in August I finally finally got a working sewing machine. And not the first thing, but one of the first things I did, was get my binding all together and on my quilt.
You've seen the quilt top (quite a while ago) but now I can finally show you the entire thing.

I was supposed to borrow my friend Tanya's baby for the photo shoot. But he lives a little far away and I was unable to get him. Babies lead very busy lives you know. He's almost ready to learn how to walk.
So instead of a baby model I took my quilt home and got the next best (better?) thing. A puppy model. Every time I feature Esme on my blog she always has her tongue sticking out and looks so derpy. I don't know why. I swear she doesn't always look like this. Oh well at lease she is happy.
The finished quilt size is about 61 x 70 and was made with fat quarters that were my Christmas present from my sister. Which is exciting because that means I get to keep it. Cause it was a present. Yay.

So pretty. But my machine is on a time out. So I'm not even tempted to try my hand at it.

Love the quilt--those are the cutest fat quarters I've ever seen!

It is so beautiful, and I think your choice of model is probably better at sit and stay than a nearly ready to walk baby would have been anyway!

Esme isn't derpy - she's smiling!

Fantastic job at combining fabrics with design! It doesn't always come out the way you envision it as a quilter but you've nailed this one...

I love to follow your blog, just don't always leave you notes...
