I am so totally in love with this thing. It doesn't hurt that I've been working on it for almost a year & a half!
I was so worried when I washed it the first time since I hadn't pre-washed any of the fabric. My worst fear was that all that red would bleed all over the rest of it, but Color Catchers to the rescue! I used a dozen (not even joking!), six on the first wash & six on the second, and they definitely did their job. I'll probably wash it alone & use some more the next time I wash it as well. The last thing I need is for it to get ruined in the washer.
I couldn't have been happier when the very first time I spread it out on the floor, Coop was playing on it like crazy. I think this is one of my all-time favorite pictures of Coop!
The back is fairly simple, but I really love how it turned out.
It feels so good to be done!
So you might be wondering what have I been up to the past week that kept me from sharing all this? Oh, just this little project!
That's right, I made another quilt top! This one is a little smaller than Coop's (50"x70"), but I finished the whole top in six days. That's right - six days - start to finish. I'm working on the back now & trying to decide how I'm going to quilt it. I think I'm going to try doing this one on the machine, so we'll see how it turns out. So far I'm loving it though!
Until next time...
