Labeled and gifted
Finally labeled the little adventurers quilt. I called it finished on the last day of 2016 and thought I would get the label done on New Year's Day. I thought I would do a little hand quilting around the adventurers, label, and be ready to gift it in no time.
Lots of different names kept running through my head. That was one little road block.
I got stuck hand quilting around the boys. I wasn't very good at judging how long to make stitches.
And how many rows of hand stitching would be best?
And where exactly to stitch?
So many questions. I put the quilt down for a few weeks-more than a month.
Then something clicked and I got to work.
Anna and Steve were in town today so I finished the label and stitched it down.
Yea! It is really finished and given away. I wanted it to look like sand and water.
I think it does. Hope they enjoy it and remember our trip last September.
