Prepare for picture overload! I’m smitten with this quilt! The first picture was taken after the last stitch went in.
You can see that the markings were still there. This is what I used for marking. I would recommend using the fine line version, but I had this on hand and it worked.
Oh, did it work! One trip through the wash and every bit came out! Please test before using as your mileage may vary. All fabrics in this quilt came from Mr. Wonderful’s shirts, so they had been prewashed.
I machine stitched the binding to the back and used perle cotton to big stitch it down.
Here is a look at the flannel backing.
I included a couple pockets. I stuck my hand inside to quilt that area without quilting the pocket closed.
This is what the other side looks like.
This was a great travel project and some of the most relaxing, fun hand quilting I’ve ever done. It ended up about 55” by 70”. I’m sure it will be a favorite couch quilt.
Have a great day!
