There was just enough flannel to turn it over and machine stitch down for “cheater-binding“, firstly doing a zig-zag stitch along the raw edges to ensure it doesn’t fray too much.
I did straight line quilting about an inch apart in the white areas and echo stitching along the printed fabrics.
I haven't done many pieced backings as I tend to use a single large piece of wide backing fabric instead, but I really like how this has turned out and the flannel is so lovely and soft.
We went away for a few days to celebrate my parents 70th birthdays (Mums was in August and Dads in October) so I took some pictures of the quilt at the amazing place where we stayed.
It was called Barefoot Oasis and is located in the Byron Bay hinterland - it had a lovely pool as well as a cute little “Bali Hut” overlooking the green valley.
There were lots of black cockatoos flying around screeching loudly and we also managed to find the resident koala just before we left, although she soon disappeared due to a huge storm that came through that evening.
