Almost done!

So here is Jess's baby quilt top all done. I need to pick up some fabric for the backing and binding. I'm thinking pink polka dots. Then I need to decide how to quilt it. I believe I'll stick with straight line quilting ... I'm still not confident enough to take on stippling something this big.

This is a little wall hanging I had pieced before Christmas. I thought it would be a good practice project for my free motion quilting. It's a bit tricky catching onto the constant motion and the high speed on the stitching versus the slower speed that you are moving the fabric. Think "patting your head and rubbing your tummy at the same time!
Here's my Doll Quilt Swap 6 with the borders added and all machine quilted. I just need to label and bind it and it's finished. My partner is a newbie to quilting so maybe she won't be too hard on me. OR, I could keep this one for myself and make her a new one. I do still have a whole month before it needs to be to her. Hmmmm ???!!!

  1. Lisa Dawn ... since this was my weekend for learning new things, I decided to print off the directions you had given me for inserting the text between the pictures and after some trial and error, I got it to work! Most definitely a new trick for this old dog!!
