My Aunt recently moved home and mentioned that her walls were a bit bare. So I decided to embroider her something. Her couch colors are navy and wine.

I wanted it to be fairly quick and fairly big. I printed off an enlarged coloring page and traced it onto the fabric with a water soluble mark b gone pen. After I embroidered over it i basted it and machine quilted around the outline (something i'd never done before). I also put together the strip edging to frame it in and make it look larger. The backing was cut a couple inchies bigger on all sides so that I could fold it over and use it as the edging instead of bias binding.   I hope I've posted this on hte right board because it is part needle work and part quilting so I wasn't quite sure where it belongs.

Your quilt is very cute. Plus, I also use the backing of fabrics for self-binding. The sooner the binding is done, the sooner the quilt can be used.Cheesy
