Then I laid it out in the basement. I kept a few of the blocks for the back. (I really to tidy up a bit.)
I quilted it with a meandering and an occasional paisley. I liked the quilting and it went quickly. I did have a deadline! Notice the color of the lighter what appears to be green here. It was a very light aqua color. Basement night time lighting here for sure.
Here are a few pictures of it after I finished it. I did not have it ready for the day of her party but did finish it in time for her birthday. So it was a combination gift. There is a Tula Pink strip for the binding.
I had this Dear Stella paisley in my stash and it worked out really well with the left over blocks. I signed it in one of the boxes.
One more of the back and you can see the quilting on it. I used my favorite Aurfil on this one 2600 Silver. That color just blends perfectly.
Have to say she loved it! These are her favorite colors and she loves animals. I quilted her name and the year into the quilt as well but forgot to snap a picture of that. I received a very sweet thank you note and it will be the center of her decorating for the dorm room come September.
This is one of the quickest turn around I made on this quilt. I think it was about a 3-4 weeks. I really loved this pattern as well.
This one finished up about 60 X 70.
