I've been on a roll! I've attached the pieced border, layered and pin-basted, machine quilted, and bound my little scrap/sampler baby quilt, and I have to say I think it's pretty cute.
I quilted with pale violet thread to match the back, in a pattern of reversing loops. I do believe my machine quilting is improving, but I still think I'm a better hand quilter than machine quilter. However, I can see that machine quilted items are much more likely to get finished, so I will continue to work at it! My pile of unfinished projects continues to shrink.
The finished quilt is 40" by 42". I used cotton batting, so the quilting will snuggle in and the quilt should be soft and comfy after washing--someone will have to let me know how it turns out, because there's going to be a. . .
I'm so excited! sewmamsew.com is hosting and coordinating a Giveaway Day on Monday, May 17--they will have a huge list of links to giveaways on their site, so check in for sure. The list will be up for several days!
I'll post my details on Monday!
