Our gorgeous niece (whom we affectionately call Poppet) recently had her 7th birthday – I Know! Already!
I saw a gorgeous kit at the quilt shop towards the end of last year (they don’t have any left if case you’re wondering) and just knew I had to get it for her.
These sweet little girls on the fabric look so like our Poppet! The making of the quilt top was a breeze, rotary cut and stitched up on the machine. The machine quilting, however, was another story altogether!
After quite a few thread breaks and the disaster of finding I’d double folded the backing underneath (accompanied by some intemperate language!!) the quilt was finally quilted.
Luckily she’s definitely worth all the angst (and I’ve been assured again that I really, REALLY, don’t like machine quilting!). It is such a sweet quilt.
I hurriedly attached and stitched down the binding and…..Job Done just in time for Poppet’s birthday
and she’s delighted with it! So it was definitely worth while.
