Quilt of the Day

Summertime, 2005.
This is Eddie's quilt. His initials are down in the bottom left hand corner. I was going to sign it with my own. Silly mother.


I love the wonky lettering.


That border print is by KP Kids.....and those orange stars are for a year of colour!


I put white ric rac under 'fussy cut' portraits and buttonhole stitched them (by machine of course) with a heavy white cotton thread to make postage stamps.....or maybe they're postcards. Nice bubble quilting.

Cute quilt! The ric rac was a great idea - it looks very effective. But then I do love ric rac :D
