Remember this project?
I finally made some progress on it! I had been on the lookout for flannel for a while, checking the flannel sales at my local fabric stores whenever I could and browsing the internet for something that would work. I finally found a polka dot flannel duvet cover set on super sale and purchased it. The background is white and the dots are large, in a color called "seafoam". It is a cross between forest green and teal, I like it.
The flannel is very nice quality and super soft, I was pleasantly surprised. Into the wash it went! I then cut a layer of batting and a layer of flannel to the size of my quilt top and started assembling the layers together.
After ironing all 3 layers together, I basted the quilt sandwich with some safety pins. I am in dire need of MORE safety pins, I don't think I used enough to properly secure the layers together for quilting, but it will have to do for now.
And then I began quilting. I don't have a walking foot for my machine, and this quilt is bulky. So, it has been a challenge. But square by square, I am getting it done.
I am quilting with white cotton thread, about 1/8 inch on the inside edge of each "layer" of the block. So, there are 3 stitched squares for each quilt block. You can see how it's starting to look from the back.
I think I have found the perfect fabric in my stash for the binding, I'll keep you posted. I am excited to get this quilt done and begin enjoying it in front of the TV at night. It is going to so soft and snuggly! I love homemade coziness!
