Last night I finally finished the binding on my quilt for my daughter. This is an Alex Anderson pattern called "Petit Fleur". I decided to tackle a scallop border. Here's the full quilt.
I'm curious to see how the scallops hold up over time. There wasn't anything providing extra stability for them, so I hope they don't warp or fold over.
Here's a peek at the backing.
This was also the first time I attempted quilting a border that wasn't continuous. I did half flowers around the sides and the corner has the whole flower. It mimics the yellow flower on the fabric.
The best thing about this quilt for me was Samantha's reaction. I haven't really "given" it to her yet (i need to label it). But when I was done the binding, I stood up and held it up to take a look at it and she was mesmerized. She kept saying "Wow" and asking me to turn it around and show her more. It was so adorable. And I was blown away by it because she's two... I fully expected her to not have any interest. Maybe I have a future quilter on my hands!
