So, my hearts and feather whole cloth is done!
One thing I should have done differently was the binding. I tried (for the 1st time) to do a blanket stitch when I added the binding, and I think I should rather have done it by hand. The stitch itself looks great, but my hand was not as steady as I would have liked. Next time for sure, I'll add the binding by hand..
Here, my baby girl Kayleigh (11 months old) took the quilt from my hands and when she put it down on the carpet, she climbed on top... so cute!
