Here is the fabric that we picked out:
So, I picked out my favorite block that I learned how to do in my Beginning Quilting Class that I took at My Girl Friend’s Quilt Shoppe last fall. I made 12 of those blocks, and put on two borders, one skinny, one wide. Then I was stuck. I didn’t want to pay to have it machine quilted – but I wasn’t brave enough to learn how to do it myself. Luckily my sister Holly convinced me to learn. She gave me this tutorial to learn how: Thimble Blossom’s Camille Roskelley’s Stippling Tutorial. Then I went to Holly’s house for a few days so she could help me do it. After practicing over and over – I started to get better! With Holly’s confidence in me, I started to machine quilt this baby quilt for my friend on my own sewing machine. It’s not perfect – but I’m so proud of how it turned out. I came home from Holly’s and did the binding on the quilt – so now it’s ready to show off!
