Its been awhile since I finished a quilt and I had almost forgot how much fun it is! I put off quilting it because I knew the straight stitch quilting would take me awhile, but now I’m glad its complete and ready to use. The backing (I forgot to take a pic) is a denim colored broadcloth. The total I spent on the backing………… $3.50!!! I love making quilts, but the batting, backing and binding always get spendy. Even though I love a pieced back, I rarely look at the back once its done. So here’s to cheap backings, and I LOVE the way it washed up really soft. The binding is from the Wee Play line, and I love those letters popping up here and there along the binding! This will be such a fun quilt for my son to find the letters and numbers in.
I did a grid pattern quilting, a lot like I did on this quilt.
And its already getting good use watching Chicken Little for the 37th time.
