This Makes Me Hungry...

I just got my quilt back from my niece, Maika.  She is one of my quilters, and she does a beautiful job.  I am so excited about this quilt.  It is so darling!  Here are some pics that show the quilting.
 I gave Maika a wool batting by Quilter's Dream to use in this quilt.  It is my favorite because the quilting shows so well, yet it is thin and soft and drapes beautifully.

 I am working on the scallops for the edge.  Won't that be just the perfect touch to finish this quilt off?
 My friend Janet Platt of Quick Points Rulers has a new scallop ruler that I am using to make the binding trim.

Here's a shot of the whole quilt, without the border, so you know it will be even cuter!

 I'm naming this one Berry Patch.  Imagine that.


This is getting good!

Okay, so it is REALLY a yummy quilt in more than one way. But I'm confused (go figure) about the scallops that you are adding. After the quilting? You make that scallop and tuck that in when you stitch on your binding?? I'm totally guessing here. Then when you turn back your binding you will leave that in place..?? Totally guessing I guess I will just have to wait for the finished product.

The scalloped edge will definitely be the cherry on top of your berry-licious quilt!

This is going to be the most adorable quilt ever...it already is even before finishing it! Your letters look fabulous, are they made from bias tubes?
