    Red face Et voilà, now it's finished.....

    ...and ready to be given away, the quilt my DGD Maylin and I made together.
    Since we have such high temperatures at the moment in many parts of Australia, I decided not to put any wadding in the middle. Instead I used some material which was given to me some time ago (a full container of it... !!!) for the backing. It's jersey knit with a pattern and fleece lined, I thought this was enough. I was a little afraid it would pucker (first time I used this) but it went very well and I only used the normal foot, not the walking foot.
    You all have a lovely week-end!!!

    Here in South Louisiana, I use only a light batting. We usually have only two or three weeks of really cold weather each year-- and rarely do we have freezing temps. I get the traditional batting which is very flat but it gives a nice body to the quilt.

    The little quilt it precious!
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I like the pieced binding - it really goes well with the "happy" look of the quilt.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    The quilt definitely looks happy, as ArtsyOne said. How wonderful that you were able to quilt with your DGD.
