Well here it is! All finished and washed for the first time! My daughter woke up the morning after I finished it and fell in love. It is just perfect for her personality and the perfect size for her 3 year old self.
After the quilt sandwich I rolled up each end like this so I could fit it into my machine to quilt.
I decided on straight lines a 1/4 inch away from each seam horizontally and I “stitched in the ditch” for most of the quilt vertically. Don’t look too closely on how straight my stitching is!
The backing is the bright white and pink flowers shown on the front and I made it about two inches wider than the quilt top so I could try the cheater binding for the first time. It was super simple and the binding was finished very quickly. Here is a link for the tutorial on the binding from Rae at Made by Rae.
Thanks for following along on the quilt series. I hope I answered questions you may have and please email if you have any!
