DANG Sweet…

Lil’Arthur’s quilt is finished in record time…and it is adorable!! (That is ALWAYS a surprise!! :o))

I ended up doing some BIG hand stitching around his name for added POP…and it worked!  Just the right touch, don’t you think? 


Not to worry…I tested the RED perle cotton to make sure it wouldn’t bleed!  (I soaked a large piece of the thread in a bowl of hot water then laid it onto a piece of paper towel…and no colour bled off…)


Simple but effective, clean and fresh…and after it’s washed it will be soft and crinkled!


I ended up meander quilting it.  Then I put on a scrappy binding using blue, yellow, red and green wee polka-dot fabric.

P1240430   And of course…Minkie on the back!  I want a quilt with Minkie on the back for ME…so cuddly! 


SEW there you have it!  Arthur now owns a quilt that will forever be HIS!  I sure hope he likes it!!
