Just got in a very bright and colorful quilt pieced by Becky Leonard of Virginia. Only the backing is flannel. I'll be doing the binding on this one as well. Becky has shared the story behind this quilt in her comment. Without a doubt, this is a special quilt for a special young lady.
Apr 22: Preparing backing and top to load. Seams in the backing should be pressed open and all seams on the back of the top should lay flat. I like to use an iron to touch up any extra creases or folds that cannot be helped when shipped. IQ is programmed with a 7.5" high pattern. (Becky, let me know if you think the dragonflies pattern needs to larger/looser.)
Apr 23: Finished loading & basting. Ready to quilt. And quilted! Posting a lot of finished pictures because they came out so well. That doesn't usually happen. Must be a magic quilt.
Apr 24: Binding is now attached. Hand binding is underway.
Apr 26: Binding is finished.

This quilt is for my 9 year old Makenzie. It is to replace the blanket I made her while she was going through chemo 5 years ago.

I just showed Makenzie the pictures and she can hardly wait to get it back and snuggle with it.

LOL. Makenzie, I am about to cut your binding and hope to attach it tonight before I quit. Have to "square" your quilt first. More pictures coming your way.
