Bedding Set For my Son

The Quilt
Hello my dear friends and readers, finally I am back at my Blog after some months of only appearing in the Julie Harris Creations Facebook and in the Instagram account; The reason behind all that is because finally we got to moved to our new house and organizing and putting everything in place, just me and a 4 years old toddler is a lot. So here we are! making the new bed decor for my son, which I have managed to make it myself ever since he was born and now that he is a toddler was time for a new face and bigger bed.  

I have to tell you this is my first Quilt ever so in the pictures below, I hope you enjoy my experience, the result of my hard work and also some tips and sources that made all this possible.

As usual the information:

size of the quilt: full
Dr Seuss fabric: JoAnn Stores
blue and red fabric: JoAnn Stores 
batting for a quilt: warm and white full size
spray adhesive brand :  spray and bond




My mitered corners I learned it from a class I took with Eileen Roche in Craftsy: the machine embroidery quilt. I can say it was an amazing class and another option for quilts.


And Yes, I did all my quilt binding by hand, I fully enjoyed and you can not see the stitches in the other side of the quilt, which makes it very clean.


Information for a continuous bias binding, I learned from this girl Whitney sews in YouTube.


The serpentine stitch is the one that I used for the quilt, I only had to feed the fabric as if I would be sewing in straight line and the machine did all the job for me.  I am going to try to upload my short video about it. however that stitch I made it as wide and long as possible to cover that big quilt in a home sewing machine and the experience was great.  I loved it and I am happy with the result.


Now all I need is to work in the window treatment of his room and get his bedroom finished!  I hope this post come in handy to many of you.

May God Bless you and have a nice day!
