Sweetie Pie is served

All done. *skip*

The world's most boring stippling is over. The binding is on. Princess is delighted. In terms of its target market (three year old pink cupcake obsessed little girls) I think it looks great.

The candlewick was surprisingly easy to quilt. I don't know what you were all making such a fuss about. However I wouldn't want to stipple all over. I think it would distort too much. Because I only stippled the borders, I had a lot of empty space to keep it square.

It's the perfect weight without batting, so I am glad I listened to my helpful advisors and left it out. Not that I had a choice really - Teeny Weeny wouldn't have had a bar of it. And my new quilting needles were great, although I managed to break one on the binding when it couldn't cope with the corner. I know now for next time.

Here's a photo overload. The cats say hello to everyone popping over from Crazy Mom's and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Thanks Jeneta! That background fabric is just from the local Spotlight. And a bargain in one of their 40% off sales. I am a bit budget when it comes to buying yardage!

What a sweet quilt!! I really like how this turned out, and I'm sure that backing is scrumptious. :) P.S. Your cats are absolutely gorgeous.

This is a gorgeous quilt, Liz ... I think I've fallen in love with your boys :)

It's beautiful! I esp. love the way the squares fall this way and that way, giving movement to the quilt top and drawing me in.

I saw your other comment about quilters and cats. Hmmm, I don't have one--too many allergies in this house -- but I do have a cement rabbit in the front room, doing duty as our only pet.
