Done, Complete, Finis

Finally.

It's flat. 


It has a batting that is half cotton, half polyester. Fabricland had a sale one day and I decided to buy this since I didn't have a big enough piece of cotton batting for this quilt. There were so many flat batts to choose from so I picked one in the middle price range.

It's bound with the lightest fabric since I had long pieces already cut and it was just an easier option. It's quilted across the width except for the last row - as shown below.

The last pieced row on both ends was easier to quilt going down - as shown above. 

 I'd like to thank my trusty little Singer - my favourite back-up machine (my main machine is an old computerized Kenmore.) This Singer is the one for which I purchased the walking foot.

And now you can all go and view what others are up to at the Needle and Thread Network.

  8. Beautiful quilt! I haven't tried the Warm Blend. Warn and Natural is what I usually use, or sometimes Warm Bond which is a 80/20 cotton/poly blend.

  9. I really like your quilt....it looks very cozy. I used a walking foot for the first time yesterday; being a hand quilter. It went well.

  10. Clever idea to quilt the last rows in an other sense, it gives the impression of a border.
