Sweet Tweets

Remember this?


It's finally complete!!!

Sweet Tweets complete!
I'm so proud of how this one turned out, in large part because I designed it. But I also think it's pretty cute.

For the first time ever, I used ric-rac and made yo-yos. This one was a lot of fun to put together! I wish it had been sunnier out when I took pictures, because the quilt really is more vibrant than this.

I also tried to step out of my usual stipple box and attempted little curly-cues. They kind of make me think of wind blowing through the air. And I did a little design in the inner and outer borders-- and I didn't mark any of it! (Can you tell I'm feeling a little proud?)

Sweet Tweets back
The back is flannel-- so pretty and soft!

Last night I finished up the binding and attached the label. And tomorrow it will be given to a very special baby girl.
