I got a lovely surprise today!
My fabrics are 'It's a Boy Thing' by Michael Miller, and I picked up bargain yardage of the most sumptuous grey flannel for the back.
Some time ago I left the quilt with a friend who is learning how to use a long arm quilting machine. I said there was no hurry as my nephew's birthday isn't until September.
When I called with her today, she had the quilt all ready for me! Squee!!!
We had agreed on a large scale stipple, and it was the perfect choice. It looks particularly good on the back too!
I'm saving the full reveal for when I get the binding made and attached.
But the quilt definitely seems more grey than blue to me, so perhaps it needs a new name?
