Birthday Quilt - Quilted - Not Bound
Here is the finished product. I quilted it today & serged the edges.
Ha !! I made the bed at 9:16 PM just to take these photos...Only a quilter would understand that I think.
This quilt measures 98 X 98 inches square. A little large for a queen size bed, I think. Oh well. DD#1 said she wanted a really warm winter quilt. This one is big enough for her to snuggle up in. I used a high loft poly batting - but I think I quilted it too densley to hold a whole lot of heat. Here's hoping it's size makes up for it's heat retention!!
Prince Charming chose the "Bubbles" pantograph & I chose the palest pink thread that I had - it came out really nice. DD#1 was very proud of it, and said the quilting looked like bubbles even before I told her that they were!
Those are the pillow cases that QB1 & I made on Thursday night. The contrast edge on them is the same as the inner border ont he quilt.
All I loack is the binding - oh and a label. I'm bad at attaching labels!
