Don't look too Closely but I finished a quilt top!

Its imperfect, but finished and I love it! Of course. I am going to take some classes for sure once I finish my master's degree. For now, I am sort of learning techniques from the internet. I need to learn the basics but I just love to give new easy techniques a try. This quilt is going to be for a friend who is having a little boy. Hopefully she will not look to closely at how the squares do not line up. I think I am going to do some stitching in the ditch for the quilting. This is made from some great flannel fabrics I got at Joann's on Black Friday. What a bargain. I think she will love it and it will feel so good on the baby's skin.

I think this is going to be the year of the baby quilt. I have at least two more to do this year. I know one will be for a boy and I am hoping the other girl will have a girl. I just want to make something pretty and frilly!

The next thing I would like to try is a rag quilt. Check out the tut here

Stay tuned for that one.

Finally, as always, just a little more cuteness!

Love the quilt. Don't worry about the flaws. I think it's beautiful.

You deserve lots of praise for thinking so highly of your friend to put effort forth in making her a gift rather than just purchasing one.

Keep up the good work!

Be Encouraged!
