I did very simple quilting on my grandson's Happy Town Play Quilt. I first began outlining the roads on the front but thought the stitching looked very random on the back side. So I stopped, ripped it out, and started over. I decided to just stitch in the ditch between the rows in back, occasionally stitching in the center of the wider strips of fabric.
I preshrunk everything ahead of time, including the batting, because I don't want the quilt to shrink. It's designed to be a playmat, so I want it to be as smooth as possible.
I used one of the fabrics on the back for the binding. I handstitched the binding while watching Downton Abbey Season 1. I didn't become a fan until Season 3 so have some catching up to do!
