Christmas Package Quilt

I finished this quilt kit faster than any quilt I have ever done.

The kids and I really love how it came together.  The quilt went to my niece, I was told she loves it too.  Yay!

When I ordered the quilt kit online I also ordered backing material, it was recommended by the online store.  The backing did not match at all, so I went to my local fabric store and picked up some minky dot and it was a perfect match, and so cozy.

The binding is cute snowflakes.

I love doing appliques, so the bow was fun.  I love how all the pieces came together in the centre.  I used a variegated pink thread and a zig-zag stitch.
