All my life I've loved quilts. I grew up playing under my grandma's quilting frames and it's something I've always wanted to do. I pieced one a few years ago and hand quilted the entire huge thing. I'm still not done with the binding. When I do finally get it all done, I'll probably blog about it, but today, here's a quilt I have finished.
This quilt was my first attempt at machine quilting, and I must say I was very happy with the results.
I used this tutorial for the blocks. It came together SO easily and I didn't buy a stitch of fabric for it...all stuff I had on hand.
I quilted it in a swirly pattern, definately not perfect,
But when I washed it, it went into a happy puckery-ness that I love!
Even the back was cute!
And like almost everything I make, I didn't want to part with it, but I gave it to a friend who is expecting her first baby any day. She loved it.
