Rose Cuddle


This is Helen’s baby quilt and she brought a backing that is new to me….Rose Cuddle by Shannon Fabrics.  It is very pretty and since it has such a distinct design I thought I should quilt a very simple design so the rose pattern in the Cuddle doesn’t get too distorted.  Here is the backing fabric before being quilted.


And here it is after being quilted with open free hand curls and Dream Blend Batting.


The quilting does distort the rose design a bit but I think once it is used and washed the long fibres trapped under the stitches will pop back out again.   I’m curious if anyone has experience with this backing and how have you quilt it?
