Then I had a blast machine quilting different designs...
one star to wish on,
and lots of hearts in the center and in the surrounding border,
and the letter 'A' for 'Abbott' in a few of the bubbles printed on the panel.
I was complaining in last Sunday's post about hand appliqueing the baby's name on the bottom of the panel, but it turned out OK. I don't love it, but I can live with it!
I bought the loveliest mint green flannel for the backing from Ye Olde Fabric Shoppe in Stratford (where the panel was purchased). It washed up beautifully and soft, and was a dream to quilt!
Here's the finished quilt...
all ready to take to the baby shower. So cute!
