As my goal with this quilt was to use nothing but scraps, I did so for the batting as well.
I gathered bits of leftover batting and zig zag stitched them together to make one big piece (click here to see different methods).
I backed the quilt with a piece of flannel from an old receiving blanket. The thickness of the flannel gives it a good amount of structure as a wall hanging.
The quilting is a combination of wavy lines and some free motion quilting (tree trunk and clouds).
I added some hand applique and simple embroidery.
The bird and butterfly are based on some old drawings made by my children.
Some mother of pearl buttons from vintage button collection and finally a heart to welcome everyone into our home!
I will be linking it up to the Lark Doll Quilt Contest on flickr.
