The Queen of Finishing


 I was the Queen of finishing yesterday.


I will admit to tossing and turning in bed a couple of times because I was worried about the colors being so un baby like.  I also worried about the weight of the quilt.  But I'm all in now.    


I did add a couple of lines of purple stitching.
 In my "so into this project I'm going a little nuts" brain, I imagined them as two friends who's lives intersect and then separate over and over, but they still care for each other.  


Does anyone else do that or am I just a little goofy?


Probably both.  

 
Here's a spot that looked a little weak.

 

The edge of the denim was  little frayed where I sewed them together so I reinforced it a bit.  It was also just fun to stitch. 


 Here's a patch I added where I didn't like the way the intersection of blocks looked so I just covered it up.  I could have kept adding and changing details into the wee hours.  As it is, I was up till midnight.


And here's the ultimate test.  The quilt is in the wash, regular cycle, as I type!  Even though the colors aren't typically babyish, it is a baby quilt and will need to be able to withstand a lot!  I may have to do some repairs after the wash but I prefer to be the one to do them, along with whatever reinforcing it will need.  

I'll post pictures of the aftermath.

This post is so awesome. It's been a long time since I was so in love with a project. I love how you just followed your instinct and inspiration. This is the kind of quilt that's made to be loved, I can see the kid dragging it around the house, playing with it outside and making a fort with it etc. Well done!
