Alex's Quilt is DONE!

Yesterday, while the boys were sleeping I managed to finish Alex's quilt. For the past week I've been taking care of all the loose string, which wasn't a whole lot, but I wasn't eager to to it either, so I only did a couple here and a couple there.

The binding was a little tricky to figure out, since I didn't have a clue how a do it. So I looked up how to bind a quilt on the net and found that a majority of the site didn't have illustrations to go with the instruction is which what I needed, so I had to just wing it, which I think I did a pretty good job.

This is the material I used for the binding, you can't really tell that it is a satin looking fabric.



And the final look.


Oh yeah, we can't forget the back look it the quilt either!

Oh, I got the pattern at http://www.freepatterns.com
You have to be a member but it's completely free, which is great. Then I clicked on "Quilting", "Children's Corner", "Kids Quilts and Wall Hangings" Once there there's a pattern called "Seeing Stars". I downloaded the instructions and modified it a little bit to include more color. I think you'll really like the site...it has everything, not just quilting!
