Zebra Quilt meets Sean


While I did manage to finish the quilt before Sean was born, in a comedy of errors trying to get to the airport to meet him, I forgot to pack the quilt.  Sean and family came to visit this week, so I finally made the quilt label last night and sewed it on tonight.


Sean settled right in...




And then Aunt Kirsten learned what happens when something touches Mr. Sean's feet.

The label is white cotton fused to the zebra fabric from the front border with WonderUnder, then zigzag stitched.  I then fused the zebra fabric to the back of the quilt and hand stitched along the edges so that it won't be tempted to peel off.  The pen used is a Sakura Pigma 0.5 in burgundy, heat set.

Hopefully he'll enjoy this quilt for many years.  My first start to finish project is in good hands!

It won't be long before he's dragging it with him everywhere he goes! You did a wonderful job! This quilting thing is quite addictive, isn't it?
