At the end of December I did a post about WIP's. On my list of things to finish was Evan's first year quilt. Four of my grands had their photo's taken every month of their first year with a fabric background. I take each fabric and make a quilt with it. The quilts are all around the same size, 56 inches wide by 72 inches long. N, P & L's quilt were all quilted by the same lady, but she is no longer doing the quilting anymore, so I had to find someone else.
I used Fireside Backing fabric from Dinky Doo Fabrics. It's so warm and soft, perfect for the backing.
I requested a basic swirl for the quilting as it's a boy's quilt.
The cloud print you see below; I used that for the binding, as I ran out of the plain grey print.
I always put a label on the back, as a reminder of who made it and when.
Overall I am super pleased with how it all came together. From Evan's mum's choice of fabrics, to how it was quilted and how it looks and feels when finished.
