I found this box on the side of the road on the way home from a party, and I knew that it had potential! Some of the legs were broken off and it was dirty and dull. Loads of sanding, staining and polyurethane-ing later, it's so much prettier. I'm an avid sewer so I'm very excited about it. This box is going to get loads of use now!
I just finished another baby quilt. This time for parents who aren't finding out if the baby is a boy or girl before the birth. Was a new challenge for me to make something that worked for either a boy or a girl!
It's from the Flying Geese Denyse Schmidt pattern. I just made some calculations and made it bigger so that it would be full sized.
I'm very happy with how it came out, but I really need to learn free motion quilting so that the quilting could be more interesting. I also learned my lesson about two different colors of thread when quilting on a solid back. I feel like so much white is showing through on the back. But oh well! Otherwise, I love it!
Hello! I've made a handful of baby/lap quilts and I've machine quilted them all - but all with straight lines. I'm going to try to quilt my next one with free motion quilting. I'll practice, practice, practice first - but does anyone with experience have any specific tips? Thanks!
