Another thing I felt daunting....when she dropped it off and showed me the white muslin backing, I nearly passed out. No pressure there! So, as I started to get parts done and advance the quilt....the different colors of thread excited me and kept me motivated. I love the back, too! There has been a lot of talk on the quilting boards lately about using muslin for backing. I usually do not. I used to....but I had a bad experience with an Ohio Star a few years back and swore I would never use it again! There are now some quality muslins out there, and I may just eat my words.
Well, I should let you see for yourself. Here she is!!!!!
I know that is a lot of pics for one day, yet I still didn't get the whole thing! I freehanded trees in the right border to mimic the trees on the right side. I freehanded hummingbirds in the left border to mimic the birds on the left side. I made the rocks at the bottom to mimic the bottom of a lake bed. All in all, I am just glad it is DONE!
I still have to make her an embroidered label today, but that is nothing compared to all of this. Then, I need to catch up on housework. The last few days I have let it go, trying to get this baby done!
Have a blessed day!
