This weekend I was able to finish up the school charity quilt. To learn more from an earlier post, click here. Short story, every year our school does a quilt raffle to support families in need for the holidays. 2016 was my year to make the donation! Here is how it came out ...
When I first started machine binding it was a hot mess, now after many quilts those corners are finally worth smiling about! Plus, it probably holds up so much better than hand stitching.
Finished Size: 56 inches x 64 inches, Pattern: Squares and Stripes by Cluck Cluck Sew: Fabric: Stash, Batting: 80/20 blend, Thread: Connecting Threads - Mint, Quilting: Straight Line - 1 inch.
The new batting I purchased is much thicker than what I have used in the past. So thick I actually had to release some of the pressure on my walking foot so it would fit underneath. Needless to say, it's nice and heavy. Now it just needs to find a new home!
