So here it is - finished with the red polka dot binding, which is actually one of my favourite things about the entrie quilt.
And the other favourite thing about this quilt is the hand-stitched label on the back. At the workshop I went to with Leanne Beasley, she emphasized over and over the importance of labelling your quilts. And suggested the added personalised touch of embroidering your own signature into the label. I loved this idea so much. Imagine my great, great grandchildren looking at it and running their fingers over it, and thinking of me as I stitched the quilt. For this is destined to become an heirloom. I made it with that in mind, but also that I would enjoy it too - it is very pleasing on the eye, and the colours are cheerful. It was a lot of work, but happy work.
