Star Jersey Quilted Baby Playmat

Hello

I have just finished making a playmat as a new baby gift, As I like a challenge, I choose to applique stars onto a fab green jersey, I was a bit apprehensive about quilting a stretchy fabric , but was amazed to find it quilted without any problem!

The stars were cut from stashed cotton fabrics as was the seersucker binding.

I used green jersey on both sides sandwiching fleece in between as batting , the result is a lovely soft and warm playmat .
The stars were tacked and then hand embellished with simple running stitches,  when these were all done I added the jersey backing , ensuring the layers were flat took a bit of extra time .

Once it was all pinned securely,  it was on to my Bernina and her walking foot to echo quilt the design.

The quilting was led by the design , I edge stitched a central star and then worked across to the next one until all stars were done I echo stitched the outline of the design, was fun to do and so pleased with the finished result.
 Let me know what you think.
