Finally started quilting on a special gift for a special niece, it's going to be a surprise. Anyway, it's a pattern by Myrtle Allen, Oklahoma. I fused the fabric down and machine stitched them down thru the batting but not backing. I didn't want the top threads to show thru to the back. Then I machine quilted thru the background. It's turning out great. I'm going to use an Invisible thread on the sashing, or the pink thread would show thru on the back.
