We decided that we would use flannel for the batting - so it wouldn't be quite so heavy. After having the top finished for quite some time, I finally got it quilted! Again, not the original intention. She was supposed to do the quilting. However, she picked a stitch on my Bernina that needed a bit of finessing to make it through all of the layers.
What do I see? Dora, Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, Blues Clues, etc. The panel in the middle are embroidery designs that she wanted.
They came from Embroidery Library. I believe they are designs by this wonderful artist. She just started a new store Urban Threads and it has some great designs that younger and fresher than most machine embroidery design. I love them.
I know this quilt isn't going to win any beauty contests, but here's a photo the blanket already in use. We still have to put the binding on, but obviously it's mighty cozy just the way it is.
