In the midst of my craft fair sewing frenzy last week, I switched gears for a night and made a little quilt top from my scraps.
I have been wanting to make a "picket fence" pillow for quite some time now. The concept is just too cute. I found a bunch of cute pink and orange scraps so I thought I'd sew a little quilt for a friend and her soon to come new baby.
Unfortunately I just dove headlong into arranging colors and sewing up scraps without planning for sizing. This turned out to be a mini quilt...too big for a carseat/dolly blanket, not quite big enough for a baby quilt. So my question for you today is what to do with the sizing? Do I add a border?? Do I leave it small? I also have some pink minky I could back it with, but I want to machine quilt it..Does minky machine quilt okay??
Please help!...and Happy Thanksgiving!!
