    Very pretty! And cozy. Wonderful to see a quilt come together-I'm inspired. Thanks so much.

    Off topic....my machine may be small but it does do embroidery as well which seems fun for personalizing quilt squares. I'll have to see where that takes me.

    I wanted to quickly follow up on my quilt, in case anyone else is wondering about batting. The quilt is about 45x60 and I used the Warm and Plush cotton batting which is just perfect. I also added a light layer of Mountain Mist and used fleece backing. It is just perfect! warm enough for me yet not too warm for my 9 year old granddaughter (who is never cold). It's so cozy, she immediately stole it from me lol. I was worried it would be too stiff-it's not at all!

    Quilter's Dream Select Polyester batting provides extra warmth. I used it in a stadium quilt and a bed quilt.
