When she had her first child, the lovely Georgia, I happened to have a baby quilt I'd made, but nobody to give it to. Debra graciously took it and loved it (she's told me so every time I've seen her ever since, and folks, It's been a couple of years...).
She's expecting her second child now (who I'll go on record as predicting is male). She asked me if I'd consider looking at a fabric panel she bought - something she'd like to have a quilt made out of. Actually... there were 2 panels... and I said "sure".
So here's the first one:
|OMG... do you see the stretchy stuff here.. .and how it's bowing inward?|
EEK! EEEK! EEK!
SO OK.. Here we go:
|OK. It's mounted and ready to go. What pattern to stitch? I opted for freemotion|
swirls and curls, rather broadly stitched to avoid making the quilt stiff.
And here's the back - -where you can see how loosely I quilted it. Of course it is a baby quilt, so the batting is 100% cotton. I hope it will stand up to washing.
