Love Quilt






 Have you ever not loved your binding choice,
so much so that you had to cut it off and start over?
I did that last week!
I just couldn't stand the brown/multi dot binding
on this quilt --
I thought it would be just perfect,
but when it was finished, I really didn't like it!
 Much better with a pink solid binding, don't you think?
Scrappy solids might also have been nice,
but I didn't have the patience for that last week.
 I know several lovely ladies who are expecting babies
within the next 6 months, how fun!
So this quilt will be for whichever one has the first girl!
 
The "love" is paper pieced (pattern from Kelly), 
with bright scraps of Kona solids.
I was inspired by this gorgeous quilt on Flickr, 
and just had to make one!
For the backing I used pink minky dots,
super soft and cuddly.
Love it!

  7. What an adorable quilt. And nope, I've never sewn on binding and then taken it off. Yikes, that must not have been fun. But hey, the pink does look way better.
