I stole ... I mean borrowed - my son's Sony Cybershot :)
Today I got the hippo quilt sandwiched and quilted. Nothing fancy - just stitching 1/4" away from all seams. Got one little pucker but it's pretty much hidden in the chenille :D
Here's the minky backing showing the rows of quilting - I didn't have a feel for how taut to hold the backing when I was stitching so I got a tuck or two in the first row - then it was (fairly) smooth sailing :)
Here's a bit of a closer view of the quilting and the adorable fabric. Jenn, I hope you like this!
I'm going to curve off the edges with a plate and machine stitch the binding tomorrow - I haven't decided between red TOT and a polka dot print that I found at Joanns - I'll audition them tonight and make a decision. The polka dots match the fabrics well, but the red TOT should really make the red in the print, POP!
