Yes! It is completed. With any luck, it will be shipped today. What is it you ask?
The Anchor Baby quilt is all quilted, bound and ready to go. I washed and dried it yesterday as is my practice. I try to never let a quilt leave my hands without being washed. Any surprises should happen to ME not the recipient. By surprises, I mean: Burst seams (hey it happens) - Color bleeding -or any other "oh no! what happened!" moment.
I was quite pleased with the final result. The quilt is lovely and did the perfect quilt puffy wrinkle that makes it so snuggly. Just look!
While the quilt was in the wash, I took one of the work logo shirts that I had purchased but could no longer wear since retirement and "fixed" it.
I put some of my handwoven fabric and a backing layer of white cotton behind the logo. It was all held nicely in place with some Lapel Stick. I sewed with a triple stitch and then carefully cut the original logo area away just inside that stitch. Since the cotton shirt just might fray, I also zigzagged over the edges with a matching red thread.
I also added a bit on the center back yoke. But I didn't take a picture of that one.
