Ms. H is our littlest one's teacher in toddler Montessori and our whole family adores her! Ms. H is starting her well-deserved summer break today, and I made her a gift.
This quilt actually caused me some headaches...but I don't want to dwell on those at all, because I am so happy with the final result, and really hope that Ms. H loves it!
The basic design is yet another project from Kim Brackett's wonderful book Scrapbasket Sensations, although I made several changes -- some accidental (my blocks are spinning counter-clockwise; oops) and some intentional: I trimmed to 11" rather than 11.5" to allow for some shorter scraps, I left out the cornerstones that the original Scrapbasket pattern had in the sashing between blocks, and I omitted the wide patterned border in favour of more of the solid background fabric and a narrow border of my favourite fabric in the project, the aqua Farmdale blossoms.
I love the aqua Kona solid binding too.
And the back provides a nice quiet contrast to the front.
Time constraints demanded all over meandering FMQ...no fancy schmancy quilting on this one.
But I hope Ms. H likes it...here we go to give her her present...bye bye for now!
