New Project Alert

Yo homies! After finishing my own personal quilt, I fixed my nephews quilt. New twin size batting, Quilters Dream Orient, was the first thing purchased. This batting is probably one of the softest things I have ever felt. Kind of felt funny covering it with a quilt top it was that soft! After having a not so great experience with batting spray, the quilt was pinned. For a backing, I decided on a light blue with a faint pattern and a bright yellow, both matching the colors on the quilt top. I tied it with yellow, orange, blue, white, and green embroidery floss to match the colors again. The binding was the same satin green binding I'd used before. I also tied the quilt and taught my niece how to do it. It's really kind of fun and easy to do.
