Mellow Yellow

Before leaving to help my relative last week,
I prepared this quilt for a little hand work!
 
I machine quilted diagonal lines through each of the bigger squares.
 
Then I packed it up.

It was the perfect project to have along.
 
I chose a few different embroidery floss colors...
and just did a simple little stitch around each of the small squares.
I used three strands.
 

A little HAND STITCHING
goes a LONG way!!!
 
I THINK it adds SO MUCH!!!

LOVE the backing on this one!

It's all rolled up.

Ready to be given away!

Do you know as many
MOMMIES-to-be
as I DO?????

    1. When hand quilting with these big stitches, I use whatever batting is handy. If I'm doing a more traditional hand quilting stitch with small needle and small stitch I use wool or a thin polyester batting.
