Finally…..some sewing

Here’s a baby quilt I just finished for a friend. I’ve been practising my free-motion quilting a lot and was reasonably happy with the practice pieces.

However – I felt as if I went psycho when I put the needle into a Real Quilt and it is not as good as I’d hoped.BabyQuilt1I tried out my walking foot for the first time and didn’t like it at all for quilting in the ditch. Then I shadow quilted 1/4” either side of the seams, which in hindsight I shouldn’t have. Still, being a kid’s quilt, hopefully it will stand up to lots of washing.

The label was from a roll of labels fabric and I hand painted it with watercolour textile crayons in pinks, once I knew it was a baby girl.
