I made Indigo a velveteen quilt for her 4th birthday and it's my all-time favorite blanket ever. I love it so much, in fact, that last Christmas Ind wrapped it up and gave it to me! I couldn't accept it - I made it for her, after all. But I definitely took her up on her offer to share... and it does end up on my bed more often than I might care to admit.
I bound the quilt with Anna's Maria Horner's Mixed Signals using this zigzag binding tutorial. I had always been rather traditional about hand sewing my bindings, but this was much faster and I'll bet more durable, too. The zigzag stitch gave the quilt a fun look. I was really happy with that method and will definitely use it again.
I couldn't send a quilt without a label, could I? Nope, I couldn't.
I did manage to get in a few more projects, just in time for Christmas, and at a relaxed pace. I'll be back with those soon.
