I made my first quilt the other day! I was so ding-dang proud of myself. It's a mini little practice quilt, perfect for Ruthie to use as a play mat. I used some of her favorite prints to encourage staring and spur interest during the ever dreaded tummy time.
The next one is going to be awesome. I can't wait. But my machine needs a serious tune-up before I'll embark on that one. I'm so glad I figured that out on my practice quilt first....LOTS of seam ripping on this one. It was also good to go through the steps (thanks mom!) and problem shoot on scraps I had laying around the house before I messed up the real deal. I'd better get at it though, I now have requests from the boys for quilts of their own. :)
I used a soft turquoise toile print, an orange mod leaf print, and white pinstriped linen leftover from the crib bed skirt my mom made. It's backed with a vivid floral print - one of Ru's favorite burp cloth prints.
Here it is - from start to finish - in all it's tiny quilted glory!
