Wild Thing Finished

Wild Thing is now finished.

The sun was shining gloriously, and I thought it would be fun to take the quilt outside for a photo shoot.
I had to work quickly as a slight breeze came up and kept blowing the quilt around.
I guess that is to be expected with a name like Wild Thing.

Just lovin' that hand crocheted ric rac.

One of the nice things about opting to use crochet thread for the ric rac is the wide variety of colors available.
It was easy to find just the right color of blue that matched with It's a Hoot fabric line.
A gift for my grand daughter.
I might even brave it and quilt this one myself.
