We're all our own worst critics, right?  Cheesy. The sailboats are a little crooked on the back.

This is another learning quilt for me!  (See the Wee Scotties if you wonder what Im talking about).  Wink   This was another quilt that ended up somewhat crooked due to my laying the backing out lengthwise on the longarm instead of leading with the selvage edge, although it isnt nearly as obvious as the scotties.  On the white border, I made it by sewing strips together (like I would binding) and then sewing them around the quilt (2 lengths and then 2 widths).  Apparently, I should have measured and eased the strips to fit instead.  I ended up with a longer border on one side that made the longarming really tricky, since I had to ease the extra fabric in as I went.  I also ran out of binding 6 inches from the end, despite my using a binding calculator on a quilting site.  I think maybe if I had eased it more, though, I might have made it.  Oh well mistakes are how you learn, right?

This is a quilt I made for my son, who is 3.  I think he will really like it since he got excited naming the different objects on it when he saw mommy laying it out on the floor.  I hope it isnt too girly with the coral & pink colors in it, but Im not really one to be pinned down to a blue and brown are for boys color scheme because it gets so boring.  I went with a nautical/beachy theme and I used a line of nautical FQs I couldnt name now as well as some other fabrics I cherry picked (like the bicycles and the text that has names of different beaches and the madras print).  I used a blue sailboat print on the back and the binding is a rigging print in "clementine."  I basically followed the Modern Plus Quilt Tutorial from the In Color Order blog, although my quilt is bigger (twin sized) and framed with a white border and my backing is different.  I thought the border would help break up the loud pattern from the binding a bitbut I dont know if that is really possible with my fabric choices LOL!
