Last week I showed you the top to this quilt.
Well, I worked really hard and finished the entire quilt and I love it!
For those of you who didn't see last week, I made this quilt from all of my daughter's receiving blankets. I also added some pink minky fabric because I didn't have enough receiving blankets for the size of quilt that I wanted to make.
This is a great repurpose project!
This quilt is so incredibly soft, you would not believe! I'm thinking that I want to sleep with this blanket every night!
I used a walking foot on my sewing machine to quilt it. I followed the zig zag pattern, but I did not "stitch in the ditch". I stitched in the center of the zig zags or just above or below the seams.
The binding took awhile. I did the usual method of stitching one side to the quilt with the sewing machine and then hand stitching the other end to the other side of the quilt.
A few years ago, I made a quilt out of my boys' receiving blankets. That quilt is another family favorite, as I'm sure this one will be!
This is a great way to take something precious and make it into an heirloom!
