I completed the quilting this morning. I showed it to my daughter and she is sure that my granddaughter will love it...and it does complement the color scheme she has selected for her dorm room.
I tried something a little different this time. I used two layers of batting---a poly and a thin cotton. This is not something I would do with every quilt, but it does help the quilting to be more defined. Since I used a solid backing, the quilting really shows up there. I love the look of concentric circles!! All I need to do is to trim it and bind it later today (by machine of course), create a label and one graduation gift down, a couple more to go.
I also gave my daughter the red and white quilt yesterday as a early birthday gift. She loved it!!! As with all gifts that are appreciated, it made me feel great!
It snowed last night!!! The sun is shinning brightly this morning, but I have lots of housework to keep me busy inside. Have a great and productive Saturday!! A think the weather calls for a nice big pot of homemade chili!!
