I had this quilt top finished for quite a while, but never got around to doing anything with it. I'd promised a friend that I'd make her a quilt for her baby, so... she looked through my pieced quilt tops and picked this one. I didn't have time to hand quilt it last summer between moving and the shortness of time of a pregnancy, so I took it with me to the States and had a quilt shop in Shreveport quilt it for me. She did a really good job and it was very inexpensive! The only part of that I didn't like was that I had asked her not to bind it. I wanted to put an ecru lace on the edges. She bound it instead... these are the pictures my parents-in-law took of it before they shipped it off to Florine, who'd also moved in the meantime, for Alexandra. It got there just before she was born in October!
