People might think I have given up quilting as my number one hobby. No, I have not. However, in the summer time it slows down to a snail's pace.
I have completed two baby quilts in the last few months...and almost thru with another one.
Both of them were accomplished with a cheater pattern...normally I cut all those 10 zillion pieces and sew them back together...but when I saw this fabric design I knew it was something that would feel good in making. You know how some fabric just talks to you - well, this one did.
The first one I used just a binding - no border. On this one, I added the red border to make it a bit larger.
As you can tell from these pictures the characters are so cute...what child would not love this little quilt?
From this snapshot you can see my hand quilting. On the center right is the label I made with my embroidery machine Leon bought me back in the spring.
The first quilt was given to a couple at church. The second one is still here in the (messy) sewing room - but it will also go to a couple at church.
Blessing of the week: rain, cooler temps, and starting a new quilt.
