Best Basting Buddy

Since basting, this quilt has been quilted, washed and dried, and bound, and it looks FABULOUS.  But you'll have to take my word for it since I have no photos.  Eventually that will happen.  I absolutely love this quilt.  So far, it's a favorite.  I roughly followed Oh Fransson's quilt along.  I say roughly because I was bound and determined to make this quilt, and that was before she posted the quilt along.  My squares are a different size, but other than that, it's exactly the same.  I even used her quilting tutorial, and though it wasn't my favorite while I was quilting it, I absolutely love the way it washed up.  Oh yeah, and my little helper?  Since he was up at 1 am, we figured there wasn't anything better to do than basting.

Some day this will be a super cute sewing kit.  Right now, what should look like an orange, looks like a pumpkin.  There is also supposed to be a needle spot, but since I sewed the hinge on the wrong side, it wasn't going to shut if I added the needle spot.  Oh, and the zipper is upside down (that I'm not going to fix).  After spending this much time, I decided that I'm going to unpick and do it right.  Someday.  For now, those sections sure are cute!
