I love the coral and purple Island Batik fabrics I picked for this project. They're so cheerful.
Part of this process is folding back the fabrics as shown below.
Once the top was done I was ready to quilt. At this point none of the fabrics had been folded back.
You were supposed to topstitch down the folds, but I decided to do it while I was quilting it and skip a step.
Some places had a LOT of layers of fabric, but I persevered.
The middle was a bit messy for my perfectionism so I decided to add some decor. I picked a button and added some purple beads while I stitched it on.
You were supposed to tack these points at the end by hand. I decided to stitch down their centers.
Of course I used my favorite Aurifil Threads and Hobbs 80/20 Blend batting.
So pretty and cheerful.
I hope you get to quilt today!
