She's done! I was able to stitch the binding on yesterday afternoon while the kids played around me. Cooper would crawl up to me every so often and tug at my loop of thread so I could say, "Boink!" and then would go play with toys. Pretty awesome and unexpected.
I loved the idea of hand quilting Ingrid, but reality kicked in and I did some loose machine quilting in a grid instead. I backed the quilt with shot cottons and a strip of Anna Maria Horner's Garden Party fabrics. This combo of minimal quilting and the shot cottons makes the quilt soooo soft. It's bound in Kona Snow with a little strip of purple shot cotton on one side.
Ingrid is staying with us as a family quilt. I'm going to pretend that all of that white is a great idea in a home with three kids and two dogs!
