Note on the reverse the seams have been sewn in alternative directions to prevent heavy ridges when the quilt is put together.
Now for the wadding I have used an organic cotton batting from the Heirloom range. It contains no chemicals, is non allergenic and softens more after every wash to produce a wonderful soft, antique looking quilt since there is always a little shrinking effect.
Once the three layers have been sewn together all that is left is to finish it off with some tie quilting. This I did with a cream coloured yarn which, again, when washed will simply look like a small soft knot at each corner of patchwork.
So, here is the finished product and everyone seems happy!!!!
Some little friends are giving the quilt the once over.
Here is a view of the quilt folded up and ready for use.
