Craving Instant Reward

I had an hour without kids this arvo (Oh... it was a blessed hour!!!) so I jumped on the chance to give the machine a burl. I love Echino fabric and realized this morning, the black fleece in the draw was ideal for a quick winter blanket for Finn. I am so pleased with the result, I think i'll give another one a go!!

That blanket looks like it will turn out great Leonie. I love Echino fabric too, if only it wasn't so hellishly expensive.

Oooh, I like! Did you quilt the Echino onto the fleece? Did you bind the edges? I'm curious...

I have never quilted before, so I thought I would give a basic blanket a go. I quilted the fleece directly on to the echino and at the moment the edges are overlocked in red, but I am off to find some binding. I have never binded before either so this blanket is one big FIRST!! I am so happy with it, I thought quilting required heaps of special equipment and an elder to spend hours with you teaching you the craft! Oh..... I may be hooked! Any binding tips would be greatly appreciated!!!
