Unfortunately I'm not talking about me, I'm talking about my candy shop quilt.
I've finished it, (yey!) including doing all the quilting by hand. Since this is a baby quilt, I was told that people don't really use them actually on a baby at night anymore as most babies just get popped into a sleeping bag instead. And that it would be best to use the fleece as it is softer to wrap around a baby in a buggy or lay on the floor etc. Makes sense, I thought. But now seeing it as a finished object, it doesn't seem to lay as flat. Believe it or not, I HAD remembered to iron it this time before the photos were taken.
All my previous quilts have been backed with wadding and a backing fabric, this one only has fleece. There is a somewhat, more lasting, element to a quilt that has been made the traditional way.
Although in it's favour, it was much easier to quilt since it seemed a lot thinner. Maybe it would of helped if I'd tacked the top down more carefully to start with. I dunno, maybe I should try another one like this before I completely write it off, after all fleece is a lot cheaper than a wadding and fabric backing too.
