Pooh Is All Done!
I used my sewing machine to quilt Pooh using a free motion quilting method. There was enough backing fabric to bring to the front, turn under and bind with the sewing machine. Then I washed the blanket to remove the basting spray. After I dried it in the dryer to give it a nice crinkled quilted look, it's ready for Project Linus.
This was my first attempt use the free motion method to quilt a quilt. Though my stitches were not as even as I'd like, after washing and drying Pooh, he looks nice. I'm pleased. I just need to practice, practice, practice free motion quilting. Yeah!
By the way, I like spray basting!
