Well, it has been a while since I have posted. I have been busy, busy quilting. Imagine that! I made a prototype quilt using flannel back satin and it was, to say the least, a real challenge. Satin is not easy to work with, no matter what you are making but trying to stabilize it to a quilt back was almost impossible. So I came up with a solution. I quilted the satin to a wool batting (using no backing) and then "tied" the quilted top to a flannel backing. Instead of using yarn to tie the quilt, I used a tacking stitch on my embroidery machine. This  looked like a part of the design on the front and just like any other tied quilt on the back. I hope you like the effect. The pictures cannot capture the quilt to its best, it is so shiny and cuddly and soft.
