One of my dear family members is expecting having twins. Can you imagine? So exciting! A girl and a boy.
For her shower gift, I put together a Mother Goose themed quilt. The center is a panel and I added a red and a yellow border.
I use these nifty plastic clamps, purchased at one of our local home improvement stores. I clamp the edges of my quilt backing fabric, placed right side down, to my table. Then I layer the batting, then the quilt top, right side up.
I pin the layers together with those special curved pins, leaving all the pins open.
A regular spoon works just great to close all the pins. No need for a fancy gadget for this purpose.
One of my favorite parts of the process = trimming the quilt edges.
That's when it starts looking like a nearly-finished project.
The binding is actually the outer part of the panel that needed trimming up.
And the backing is adorable -- sweet little prints of all the Mother Goose characters.
I hope the sweet new babies enjoy looking at the pictures on their quilt!
