I started my second ever quilt in October to cover a guest bed before my sis and mom were to show in Nov. I hadn't finished it by the time they arrived. While I worked on it, my little sister showed interest in it. I had told her that I would make her a bedspread down the road once I got a little more quilt practice in, and this was my first time machine quilting, so it was going to have a lot of mistakes, but she said that this one was it! She insisted that she loved the fabrics I was using, so I obliged. I sent it off in a large flat rate USPS box the other day...
|For the machine quilting, I tried to use up an assortment of Guttermann colored thread |
that I had on hand, including beige, navy, gray, and white...all on one quilt (is that a faux pas?)
|the dotted embossed fabric is made by Diamond Textiles, would like to use some of this in black|
|I did my best at machine quilting (ok, I got lazy after a few hours!), but the fact that|
some of the shapes look more like private parts than puzzle pieces did keep me entertained!
|all folded and ready to ship to Hawaii|
