Wicked Girlie Quilt is Here!

I picked up my Wicked Girlie quilt from my long arm quilter this morning. She did a truly superb job on the quilt. I spread the quilt on my bed and I'm so excited that it more than fits the bed. Of course, I have to get some new sheets and bed skirt to match the quilt, but I'll do that later.
Here is a close up of the quilting. Susan chose a flowery template and used a dark pink thread.
The backing is the real "fun" part of the quilt. I had purchased this fabric for pajama pants, but decided it was the perfect backing for a Wicked Girlie quilt. Don't you agree?
Since this quilt is meant for me to use when DH is traveling and since he is traveling tonight, I am going to sleep under the quilt even though the binding is not on yet.

I started the binding on my DIL's quilt today, but I'm having some upper back pain so I didn't get too much done. I guess it's time to go see my PT for my "annual tune-up." I was hoping to make it through a whole year without having to see him, but no luck. Oh well, at least I know a few trips to see him and I'll be better soon.

That really turned out sweet! Maybe little sprites will sew the binding on when you're sleeping! ;o) Enjoy our new quilt!

What a fun quilt! And I love the name, too. You have inspired another 'wanna do' for me- my own version of a wicked girlie quilt.

Looks fantastic, Paula! Your quilter did a wonderful job on the quilting and the backing looks like it was an inspired choice. Good reason to go shopping since your pajamas are now going to grace your bed.

What a wonderful quilt to cuddle under when your other cuddle half is gone. And what a great name for it! That backing fabric is a hoot.

Sure hope your back gets better soon. I have a lot of upper back pain when I do a bunch of sewing.
