I love Anna Maria Horners Little Folks Voile fabrics, they are so pretty and sooo soft! After making this quilt with them I only want to do quilts with voile   Grin. The fabrics were very easy to sew with also, not slippery at all!



I like making quilts with only simple squares, especially with those fabrics!
This is the back, a neutral light blue:



I handquilted it with embroidery floss in different colors:

Wow this is just lovely. I just adore the hand embroidery. So cute and a wonderful touch. How large is the blanket?

Thank you  Smiley I didn't really measure it, but it's roughly 140x180cm, my boyfriend is holding it over his head in the picture. I don't know what that's in inches though, sorry   Wink

I like the hand stitching w/ the floss bit- the red makes it pop.

I'm no math whiz, but that's around 55x70...or so.

So pretty! I was fondling this fabric last week... it is gorgeous. I was trying to figure out what to make with it, not considering that I could quilt with it... it is so light. That's great to hear that it's not slippery!

Do make a quilt with it! Seriously, this quilt is the softest and nicest I have ever felt, voile totally rocks for quilting!!
