I wrote about this "Peppermint Pizzaz" table topper here,
a few weeks ago.
This is what I need to machine quilt, the foot, my grippy gloves that make my arms tense :) and of course my quilt.
I think it took about 5 hours to quilt.
There, it's all quilted!
Now I cut off the batting, flush with the edge of the quilt.
Sew the binding on.
Handstitch the binding onto the back of the quilt.
Yeah, it's finished! Always a great feeling :)
I wanted the peppermints to stand out a little, so I machine quilted in the ditch. I quilted jigsaw shapes on the rest of the quilt.
I stitched in the ditch with the pinwheel stars, and the squares outlining them.
I just love the fabric I chose for the back, and I love the horizontal striped binding.
Quilts always look more beautiful after they are quilted :)
