Love this idea. Did you do the satin stitch quilting using the free motion method.
Hi, Jillian. These satin stitches were done by selecting a zig-zag stitch on the machine and then adjusting it so the stitches form very close to one another creating the satin stitch. Hope this helps!
Loved this! Thanks!
when creating these small quilts, what batting or stabilizer did you use, and is it stitched through to the backing or did you cover the baking with anther fabric.
