I made this king-size bedquilt for my mum, who turned 60 in April. I knew the quilt would stay with me a bit longer, I didn`t rush to finish the binding.
Today, however, I got inspired (and wanted a bit more space in my sewingroom, he he), so I finally got the binding on. Sewing the top was not a major task, but zigzaging around all the 36 (or so) tulips was! Cutting off the excess batting was also a hard job. (I sweated and moaned, but did not say any bad words...honestly!).
I left the quilting in the hand of a professional, Merethe. She did a beautiful job quilting butterflies and loops. You can see the quilt on her Flickr-side if you scroll down. I love the quilt, and I know my mum does too :)
Have fun sewing!
