Sunflower Seeds Quiltalong Quilt Finished!

Ahhh.  The feel of another completed quilt.  This week I buckled down and worked and worked on the Sunflower Seeds Quiltalong with Jamie Mueller.  You can find her site at http://jamiemueller.blogspot.com/p/awesome-quilt-along.html

Jamie did a great job of designing this easy, jellyroll friendly, cute pattern.  I left one row off because I didn't like the colors I chose for that row... and it's a baby quilt anyways.  The end result for a baby quilt was fine.  I tried some new things such as more machine quilting that wasn't exactly "on the lines" and I also tried a scrappy binding.  I used the awsome binding tutorial from Crazy Mom at http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2008/10/binding-tutorial.html

Here's a pic of the final project.

It's not perfect, in fact the back has more puckers than I care to mention.  Even the name tag is a little crooked.  Hopefully that means that it will be used.  I know the baby receiving it won't even notice for a long long time.

  1. I love the colors you used! The baby will love it for a very long time, I'm sure!
