Here is a little quilt I made for my goddaughter, Sophie, just to celebrate my new sewing machine (Brother Innovis NX-450). It's just amazing to have a machine that actually *works*. (Previous machine = vintage 1972 Sears Kenmore.)
Anyway, this is a lime and purple strip quilt with fabrics depicting little Japanese girls in kimonos. I put a green polka-dot flannel on the back to make it cozy to sit under. And I quilted it in a random set of crooked lines I thought might resemble chop sticks. I actually don't know how to machine quilt yet so this was the best I could come up with.
Here's the finished product:
Here's a closeup of some of the fabrics:
And here's the back with the "chopstick" machine quilting:
All I have left to do is put a signature square on the back!
