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!
