    Applique Cuddle Quilt

    Here is a cuddle quilt I am making for a gift. I am just finishing up the hand sewing on the binding and making sure I got all of the threads tied and buried. But, I wanted to share today, so here it is. Quilted on my domestic machine. I really need to quilt the quilt for hubby on my grace frame and get it off. It would have been so much easier to have quilted on that. But, no matter.
    Here it is almost finished.

    Thank you all so much! I was going to make it larger but, I was talking on the phone while cutting out the backing and batting. I accidentally cut it too small and didn't realize it until I had the top almost all of it pinned on. I was about an inch and a half short on one side. Being in a hurry, I just went ahead and quilted it and cut off the border to the size where it was short all the way around. I know I didn't have to tell on myself. I just wanted to let others know that it is possible to change horses in the middle of the stream if you have to. Serves me right for not concentrating on the task at hand. Sometimes I just can't multi-task and shouldn't try.

    It is a lovely quilt. Many new quilters think experienced ones don't make mistakes. We do. I think it is valuable to say so.

    Looks like a lot of work, but a very nice finish.

    This will be a hard one to give away. Really stunning. You are in a class of quilter way above my own.
