For the backing I improv pieced of sorts. I also used paper pieced letters from Diane's pattern to piece in the name I decided to give this quilt: Papi, we miss you. For reasons beyond me, my kids call their father Papi. I don't know who started it but they have all followed suit, I guess there is worst things he will be called by them ;). I blogged here and here more elaborate about the WIP proces and how I came to the name.
For the quilting I decided to keep it nice and simple, mostly outlines, stitch in the ditch. This afterall was the biggest quilt I made to date, quilted on my small domestic machine.
For now I am linking up to Finish it up Friday from Amanda, T.G.I.F.F. hosted by Aylin and to the Oktober finished party of Melissa and Shanna.
till next time,
