The machine quilting went quite well in the end and I am very pleased with the finished look. I didn't quilt it too densely so that it has maintained a soft look which I think is in keeping with the feel of it.
Here is a quick glimpse at the back so that the quilting is a bit more obvious.
I used a blue polka dot fabric for the binding which reminded me of snowflakes on a Winter's night.
It looks great with the other decorations in my living room, so I need to find just the right place to hang it now! Or maybe I'll leave it on the sofa to snuggle under!
I am linking this post with the stitchery link up over at Super Mom - No Cape! Pop over and see who else has linked up this week!
