Baby quilt done!


I recently sent my friend, Erika, a quilt that I made for her baby, Elise, who’s now a month old.  I had every intention to have it finished before Elise was born, but honestly, I was terrified to try free-motion quilting for the first time.  So it took me a while to get the guts to try it.  It’s not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I think they’ll still like it anyway.


Here’s a picture of the front and back.  I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out, even though there are quite a few mistakes.  This is the 2nd quilt I’ve completely finished, so I didn’t expect it to be perfect.  I had fun making it and I learned a lot also.


Oliver is my trusty side-kick, as usual.


Congrats on your beautiful baby girl, Erika and Brian!  Sorry your gift was so late!

YOu made that! Wow! You're a blogger! We are supposed to be too addicted to the keyboard to find time to scrapbook has been sitting on my kitchen table for a year, in the hopes I might put down the laptop!
The quilt is gorgeous!
