Done!

I took Amy's One Thing, One Week Challenge and I accomplished it! I had done the quilt top but I needed to quilt and bind it. I actually finished it in a day. The friend I was making the quilt for had her baby and I was assigned to bring dinner to her last Tuesday. So I went into turbo mode and got it finished that day!
 I used Thimble Blossoms "Pint-Sized" pattern. Been dying to try this one and it went pretty quick. I want to try the pinwheel version that also included on the pattern too. 


 
 The fabric is Arcadia from Moda by Sanae. I discovered this fabric when it was too late to really get anymore. But I found a honey bun and somebody on Etsy had a couple of yards that I was able to use on the border and the back, whew!

 I really wanted to try some straight line quilting on this and I decided to just do horizontal lines. I don't have a walking foot, so I like to draw the lines with a disappearing ink pen. I drew the lines on about half of the quilt and realized that most the lines had already disappeared! It's supposed to be 48-72 hours, not a half-hour! So I ditched that idea. Maybe it was the weather? Who knows.
 I decided to use my old stand-by and just do an overall stipple. I love to stipple and I always like the result. The lines will just half to wait for another quilt.
 So glad for the challenge and the birth so I could finish this up! Thanks girls! Now, what to do next....

Thanks everybody! I need to clarify...I had the quilt top done, I just needed to quilt and bind it. That's what I was able to do in a day - a LONG day:)!

An old marker, maybe? I love your stippling. Congratulations on finishing, and so quickly too. I bet you made that new mom smile big :-)
