I did it!
Wohoo! I finally finished my kid's quilt! How does it look??
This weekend I finished this baby, by doing my last rows of quilting (aka sewing the layers of fabric and fluff together).
I had to roll each side as I fed the fabric through the machine, since there was so much material.
Then, I measured out 1 inch from the edge for the backing fabric, and cut. This was essential for using my backing as the finished edge of my quilt.
I folded the raw edge in half and pinned to the top of the quilt, creating a more finished-looking edge.
My assistant here was sleeping on the job! ;)
After sewing all around to secure the finished edge, voila! We have a beautiful completed quilt!
I hope this special child who gets to wrap up in my quilt, feels extra loved!
