I’m still psyching myself up to make a queen-sized quilt. Truth be told, I’m not looking forward to the manhandling, the sweating and the sore arms. Hopefully my recent weightlifting will help with that (go deltoids and biceps!) But nothing is stopping me from telling myself that I need more practice. Practice is good. Practice uses up fabric. I may need to practice some more before tackling the real thing.
This baby quilt used 3 yards of fabric – 1 for the front, 1 for the back, and 1 whole yard cut up into strips for the ruffles.
I felt like minimal quilting with a super-long stitch length was better on this one because of the busy polka dots.
Ahhh – I love that wrinkled goodness.
Do you like it baby? Um, oh yeah, I forgot – there are no babies around here – so this will be going to the pile of things to give when the need arises. It feels good to be prepared!
