Last weekend I finished the piecing of my quilt. Also trimmed all threads, straightened the outer edges and added a stay-stitching around the entire edge of the quilt to keep the edges of the pieced border from pulling apart. My daughter wanted something fluffy and warm so I decided to use a comforter as a batting and omit the use of any backing since the comforter is finished already.
I have a very basic sewing machine and my quilt is very thick, so I was only able to machine quilt close to the edges, and with straight lines. Then added the binding and let my daughter to play with it. She was so happy :)
The quilting is not completely finished, but the quilt can be used. The horizontal lines seen in the photo below are coming from the original comforter.
To finish the quilting I will hand quilt some of her nicknames and lots of hearts to go with the patter of the fabrics. She has plenty of nicknames so this will take forever…
