I love the way you pieced this together! Thrifted clothes is a great idea for fabric to use!!
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Amy butler fat quarters w/ chenille (with pix!) on: May 16, 2008 11:41:01 AM
I made this quilt last year for my DD, it was the first quilt I made.
When I went to the fabric store, I picked out fat quarters because there were SO many choices and I couldn't commit to buying yardage of any, so I came up with this layout to fit the fabric I liked most.

This was the first time I had tried quilting so it ended up being *tiny* stippling. I also quilted peonies randomly in between the stippling. I used clear nylon thread and ended up having to buy another spool half-way through because I had to un-pick so much! aargh! I definitley learned ALOT making this quilt but I love it!

*note-the chenille border was so hard to make a binding on, I would not recommend it!
Thanks for looking! It's been fun to hear everyone's feedback!

quilt measures 34 x 46

It actually measures 34"...I wanted thought it was going to be 36". I actually pieced the top before I got my new sewing machine and started quilting it after I finished the baby bricks quilt so I didn't even think to double check the measurements before I went to get binding fabric, and I was excited to try stippling and didn't think to measure it then either! I probably should have put a border on it. Oh well Sad

I like the label and the hang tag you made! That is a great idea! I got a quilt from a friend for my dd and I was so afraid to wash it!

I got a new sewing machine(thanks e-bay) and I've been gung-ho on sewing projects this week! This is a quilt I made for my sis's new baby. I used simplicity charm pack and the woven pack, then I added the chenille. The hardest part was laying out the squares.

fyi..I had been having problems with my machine tension and the thread making nests under the quilt..I bit the bullet and decided it was time to upgrade from my brother wal-mart machine(great "sewing" machine, not so great "quilting" machine)..I got a Janome..WOW what a difference! If your getting frustrated with quilting, keep in mind it might be your machine or the foot your using. I added the quilting kit with my machine that came with a stippling foot and walking foot which has made a huge difference too!

I made this quilt for a good friend of mine having her 4th baby boy. This was the first quilt I have made sewing the binding on by hand and I *hated* every minute of it. The chenille is tricky to work with but I like the texture it adds to the quilt.

ADDED-  I had seen a quilt similar to this somewhere awhile back and thought it would be fun to come up with my own pattern, so I kindof winged it. I appliqued the fish onto a onesie using the blanket stitch on my sewing machine to match.
