It’s all finished and hanging in the nursery, and I love how it came out.

After I fused the letters onto the background fabric, I satin stitched all around them. My Bernina doesn’t get as dense a stitch as I wanted, but I actually still love the way it looks.

Once I’d appliqued all the letters on I made the quilt sandwich.

I love the quilting on this, I just free motion quilted all over the brown fabric, avoiding the letters so they pop. It’s a little hard to see in photos because of the dark polka dot fabric, but you get the idea.

I bound the whole thing in hot pink polka dots from the Rainy Days and Mondays collection. It actually reads almost as red, but I think it’s perfect against the nursery’s white walls.

I think it looks great, and I sewed some loops to the back of it for hanging.

I love it up there. It was a headache to hang (thank you, dear patient husband!), but we both think it’s worth it.
