I used a wool batting and a piece of blue batik for the backing and finished it using the pillowcase method. Next I stitched 1/4" around all the edges. The inner edge seam was covered with a length of blue trim that I found in one of my crazy quilt drawers.
We have had a strange winter so far with hardly any snow though we are expected to get a few inches late on Tuesday. Folks in the the Northwest and Midwest seem to be bearing the brunt of winter's fury this year. Stay safe and warm wherever you live . . . spring is coming.
