I'm happy that I started this blog - I wish I had more time to devote to it, but given the state of my life, in all it's glorious over-booked chaos, that I have the chance to post once in awhile. Today, finally, I do have some photos of the baby coin quilt that I finished - I just got it washed and dried yesterday evening. This was my very first time free-motion quilting, and although I didn't get the tension correct, quite (there are a few places on the back where the front thread pulled through), you can't really tell after the crinkling of the wash. I really like how it turned out and it's a good thing we don't have a baby around here anymore or that this isn't a bit larger to make a lap quilt size, because then I'd be tempted to keep it!
The back is a Valori Wells flannel...very soft!
I had some help from a lovely woman at Quilt Fans (in Alameda) picking out this stripe for the binding - it pulled together the prints perfectly!
I hope that you all have a great Thanksgiving and that you have as many blessings to feel grateful for as I do!
