Serenata Quilt Finish

So the last time I left you I was just about to baste and quilt my Serenata quilt.  It took me a good full day (with the usual stops to feed the children, break up fights, etc) but I did it.

I was literally down to the last minute as my husband was packing our minivan for our vacation the next day.  So I threw it in the washer at 9pm and then in the dryer at 10pm.  Thankfully when I awoke at 5am it was dry and ready to be packed and sent off to my customer.  Unfortunately, I didn't have time or light for any great photos.  I apologize for the crappy pics but I still wanted to show you all the finish.

This was a full size  (80 x 90 inches) quilt but me and my machine were able to handle it just fine.  You can barely see it, but I quilted it diagonally across the squares.

The binding was made from the Riley Blake Serenata main floral peacock fabric that we also used on the back.

It turned out wonderfully and my customer just loves it.  She's going to use it for picnics and cuddling on the couch.  Perfect.

Well, while I was on vacation 3 more items from my shop sold and I took another custom order.  This time my lovely customer is asking for a duplicate of my cupcake pillow except in pink.  She also wants a couple burp cloths to match.  As soon as I get further along on those I'll post some pictures for you all.
