Larissa did a superb job with the tutorial on Just Another Day in Paradise.
Since I didn't have all the fluffy soft fabric she used, I decided to just use what I had in my stash. I did purchase ribbon on clearance at Walmart for $1.00 a roll. That was a great find! Because the back was simple cotton fabric, I inserted a piece of tee shirt fabric from an old shirt I had. I sewed this inside the two pieces of cotton and it gives it a little weight.
Hopefully, LMW will like it as well. And it will be a great idea for shower gifts. Thanks Larissa! (sorry I don't know how to grab your button and make it work...)
On the wisteria quilt....after several hours of hand basting, I've decided not to try to machine quilt it. I am going to use the tack and tie method using either regular knitting or crewel yarn. This way, all the potential puckers I see already, will not wind up ruining the look of the quilt, and it will still have a nice grid on the back. And it's something I can do comfortably while I sit in the recliner in the evenings.
