Binding Complete...

And my Summer Day quilt is now ready to be gifted.

I didn't want this quilt too get too stiff with lots of quilting so I went with the all over swirls. I did to do a wee bit of custom quilting in the two borders though. Nothing too fancy, just something a little different than the rest of the quilt.


I found a great cupcake fabric for the backing and what makes it even better is that it was on sale!

I wanted to wrap it up and mail it right away, but my husband suggested I give it away in June when I can do it in person.

So per the name of the quilt, I will give it away one Summer Day in June.

This makes Finish #13 for the year.

I love how you quilted it. It's beautiful. I agree with your husband, it will be nice to give it in person and see their expression. Makes it all worth while.

14! I have been such a slacker. I think giving it in person, particularly f it is a child is important. They are more likely to remember whe t came from.
