Joy to the world, the quilt is done!

December 19, 2008

Let the woman, receive her quilt!

Comes complete with 5 starfish stuffies, courtesty of my loving hubby.

The label:

The full shot:

The quilting on the striped side:

Here’s a high contrast shot to try to show the overall quilting detail:

The top right corner showing the smiling sun, the sun rays, a flock a seagulls, a biplane, and a fish leaping out of the water:

A close up of the plane:

Top left side showing the clouds, helicopter, island with the lighthouse and a small whale:

The bottom right showing the peek-a-boo crab, angelfish, shell and seaweed:

A seahorse and little turtle:

And the best shot I could muster showing Jacques the shrimp from Finding Nemo:

And finally the minkee backing with the label:

Ooh, I LOVE this quilt, and I really hope they all enjoy it! Truly a labour of love. It was given to my hubby’s boss this morning, and suffice to say he was honestly touched and delivered a hearty handshake and a beaming smile! What more could I ask for?

And thus my christmas sewing is done!

Next up, the educational video I’m directing for my mom in January! Oh! and then the wedding dress! and then??
