Quilt Top Notes/Techniques

Easy to put together instructions and fabrics. Had plenty of fabric left over from the piano key border to make a strip to go through the backing fabric to get it just the right width.

Made a coordinating Stegosaurus taggie softie from First Day of Mae as gift for big sister.

Quilting Notes/Techniques

Straight line and free motion quilting with YLI invisible thread, Gutterman 50wt cotton and Aurifil.

I remember now why I don’t buy Sew Easy cotton batting – it sheds lots of fuzzies from the edge during quilting.
