How is that for some alliteration???
I made a baby size version of Elizabeth Hartman's Fancy Forest quilt ages ago. I has been in a plastic bin in the corner of my sewing room for months, waiting for backing and quilting. I was not pleased with the first backing I chose so the quilt top just sat and waited until I had time and the inclination to get it finished. I found this soft flannel backing, perfect for my quilt. Christine and I each made our own versions of this quilt, working on the blocks at our weekly sewing night. We started the blocks in June 2016 and finished out quilt tops in October 2016.
I took the backing, batting and quilt top to Cathy at Eagle's Wings Quilts in December. Earlier this week, Cathy sent me this picture of the first pass of the quilting--it looks like tree bark--perfect for my Fancy Forest friends.
Cathy brought my quilt to me on Thursday night. Friday, after doing errands, I went down to my sewing room and sewed the binding on by machine. I used the same fabric as I used in the background.
I love the animals on this quilt! I felt like I was being watched as I hand stitched the binding!
Here is the completed quilt, finished tonight while I watched a movie on TV.
I will be linking up with the other Slow Sunday Stitchers at Kathy's blog in the morning.
