Ready to Gift and Binding Complete

I finished up The Dark Side and even have it all wrapped and ready to go. Because it is destined for a nine-year-old I added in some Star Wars Lego. After all, I doubt most little boys are all that excited about quilts- even Star Wars quilts!
Quilt folded on the bottom and some Lego on top!
Also, after lots of fussy straight line quilting inside each of the houses, and lots and lots of small stipple quilting in Aurafil White in the borders and white portions of the blocks/quilt, I got the binding on my Dwell quilt. I used Squared Elements by Art Gallery Fabrics for the binding and I absolutely love how it works as binding. I may have to use it on another quilt in a different colour!
For the first time I estimated my length of binding really accurately. Hooray for me!
I'm trying to get in as much sewing as I can while the new baby is sleeping and while my senior kindergarten kiddo is in school or quiet time but I find I don't have enough time to satisfy my urge to quilt, quilt, quilt! For Mother's Day my husband plans to take my girls away for a bit so I can have some sewing time. He's the best and I can't wait!

  1. I'm sure that 9 year old will love their quilt.. with or without the addition of Lego. My niece and nephew love their quilts!
