I took wide strips of fabric of different width and sewed them together. It was very simple. I really wanted the hand quilting to be showcased. I used a silver metalic thread so it would twinkle. For the binding I took a wide strip of fabric and folded it in half. I then slid it up the edge of the quilt and used the machine with a zig-zag stitch. I thought this would hold up better than the flip and blanket stitch that I had used on the previous two quilts. Little did I know this technique was taking me closer to the real binding process.
I made curtains from the solid lavendar that is on the quilt top. They were just sewn in a very simple square with a room darkening fabric behind. They turned out good. After they moved into their house Marc and I went over to help paint. Her room is a lemon lime and purple. We also put up some wallpaper shapes of flowers and bugs. Turned out pretty good.
This is my stab at sewing letters. Not the greatest, but again, homemade with love!
I use to go by Becky. And, some people, mostly family, still refer to me as Becky. When I was hired for my "big girl' job at Fox Sports Network Rocky Mountian I decided to grow up and go by Rebecca. It's fun to hear people call me Becky. It reminds me of my younger days.

I'll post more photos of the quilt top later. This is the only one I have in my album.
