Teddy Bear Quilt - Part 2

Finally got to the shop for some binding fabric for the Teddy Bear quilt and here it is ....



 I had to make bias binding because I had rounded off the corners.

                        
Close up of quilting.




I used a 4oz polyester wadding for this quilt so it would have a nice puffy look and its pretty light wieght for a baby.   It measures 43" x 37".



I did quite a lot of stitching in the ditch with invisible thread.  I'm really        pleased with how it turned out.      














I used a pretty polycotton for the backing.                                     


I usually use a 100% cotton backing but any time I have used a polycotton, I've had no problems with shrinkage, 







       

So that is it for the moment.  I'm working on QAYG project - the blocks measure 20" square so it will make up quickly.  Here's a sneaky peek at the batiks I oredered for the borders.

                    I'm off now to list the Teddy Bear quilt for sale in my Etsy shop.

See you all next time.
