I've finally finished the long ago started gift for my dear friend, Charlotte. It's a lap quilt, sized just right for her to sit in her cozy home stitching something...that's how I'm picturing it anyway ;). It's a crazy quilt of sorts, made up without a pattern, just a mix up of her fabrics and some vintage bits and pieces mixed in.
I even included the selvage edge, having her name on it and all...
I did some hand stitching...
...and machine stitching both.
As you can tell, it's not about perfect, but instead the charm of handmade.
Learning how to make and stitch on a proper binding wasn't hard with computer tutorials.
Isn't that label cute? I got it here. It's stitched onto the back (fabric was from JoAnn's...I didn't have enough yardage of her fabric, but I think it matches nicely.) Here's the quilt all finished:
And after giving it a fresh wash and tumble dry, it's on it's way to it's new home, just in time for winter lap warming!
