not perfect, but at least it's done

This was a take-along project for our Trek to the North. I "tied" the quilt in the car with french knots rather than little square knots with those annoying little tails that tickle you in the night. Kinda glad the photos are blurry because the quilt is far from perfect. It is for my nephew, Riley, who will not notice that some seams are not straight. His mom, it turns out, is a closet quilter. A real quilter, who like pieces her quilts and then sends them out to be professionally oversewn. Kind of like baking a cake for Martha Stewart. Oh, well. I like the binding.

I love the binding too! Very cute! I'd love to see how to do a french knot - I can only do the ones with the "tickly tails".

I covet one. It's so PRETTY!

I have no idea what a french knot is... but I agree... I can't stand the tail knots. Or that fringe knot thing people were doing a year or so back.

That's great. And being a person who has gret difficulty with french knots, I am impressed!

Oh, you are being modest. It was really cute. The ribbon was a great idea. It doesn't have to be perfect. The heart is what matters! - at least that's what tell myself :)
