Pieced at Last

Remember this?

And this?

And this?

I spent yesterday afternoon piecing them all together and here is the final result.

Isn't it lovely? Even though I had a picture on the pattern, I really was not sure how it was going to turn out and just how big it would be. I absolutely love it. It was all paper pieced and I managed to pick out all the paper during the Packer game.

This is gift for a friend who is having a Bat Mitzvah later in November. I can't wait to surprise her with it.

I would like to quilt it with a thin, thin batting as it will be for the table or a wall hanging. Does anybody have a suggestion? I want something heavier than interfacing and flexible like batting.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

  1. This is beautiful, Kris! I'm sure your friend will love it.
    My DH's aunt (who is a master quilter) uses flannel as batting in tablerunners and wallhangings. I tried it on the last one I made and I like it. She does suggested washing the flannel before using it.
