So Pretty

Oh my, Rosalie's quilt turned out so pretty! When she brought the quilt top to me I could see how striking it was but now that it is quilted I think it is quite stunning.

This quilt is heavy - it was made using stabilizer behind the background fabrics and then appliqued. It does have a minky backing that makes it so soft and snuggly and wonderful!

I used Cansew white thread with magnaglide in white in the bobbin. The panto that Rosalie chose is called Tickle from Beany Girl Quilts and I think it was the perfect choice. The batting is 80/20 cotton/poly.

Minky can be very stretchy so I was very careful when I loaded it onto the frame. The quilt sandwich was quite thick and it sort of felt like quilting through pudding. I could feel when I moved on and off the applique so I just went at a slow and steady pace. I had no problems at all. :)

Rosalie picked up her quilt this morning and I think she is very, very happy because she did do a happy dance when she saw it!
