After 7 years I finally finished Zoë's Quilt! It survived the washing machine & dryer. I was able to gift-wrap a clean and dry quilt Saturday morning 6th of July 2013.
Re-cap of the past couple of days. Got the binding ready.
Sewing the binding on. Yes, using the sewing machine
I like the fabric choice of the binding! It really makes the quilt come alive.
The Wonder Clips from Clover are great. Using them for the first time ever, although I have purchased them sometime ago.
Sewing on the binding is not easy on the fingers. Using ThimblePad ® Leather Adhesives made the sewing less painful. You can get them here or at your favourite quilt shop. I think they are a great invention. You can use one pad again and again, so don’t worry about the price. I used one for sewing on 670 metres of binding . There are 12 in a pack.
These are the other notions, scissors, needle, thread and the iPhone.
The last 60 centimetres!!!
The finished result. For the non-quilters, this is the backside of the quilt.

Washed and folded
Zoë (on your right) with her best friend wrapped in her quilt.
However, I’m wondering if it will hold up on the wear and tear of everyday use. It is kind of funny that I have to admit that I didn’t expect that it would be used. In a couple of hours I saw it being used as a towel, as a blanket and laying all crunched up on the floor. Guess who is not used to kids
This is the last post on Zoë’s quilt. Don’t worry, the next order has already been submitted. My other niece, Tess, would like to have a new quilt. She’s outgrown her baby quilt (lol). Which was my first completed project 7 years ago. Guess you don’t know, but Zoë’s quilt is only my third completed quilt.
