It has nine wonky stars with glow-in-the-dark hand quilting. I added the strips at the top and bottom to make it a crib size quilt. Here are a few more photos - just because it's my favorite quilt ever!!
I love gingham backing. It's very soft and home-y. Is that a word?
I also ran Twin Cities Marathon this weekend with my sister. She beat me by 11 minutes - that stinker! We're still smiling at the end so the event was a success.
There we are in the center with our names on our shirts! Becky and Vicky.
The speedy little sis.
I've also been sewing up a storm. I'm working on a few new patterns (dresses, of course). I've also sewn a custom quilt, pillows and bed skirt for a soon-to-arrive baby, some simple curtains for the church nursery, and a class set of chair-back bags/organizers for a local school. Whew! In between these crafts I've managed to begin some Christmas gifts. I think I'm planning on an entirely handmade Christmas so it's good that I've already started! Anyone else planning a handmade Christmas? Tips?
I've completely forgotten about Halloween and have to come up with some costume ideas. Our family of gnomes last year will be hard to beat. I think animals might be easy with some sort of sweatshirt embellishment?
