So, I bit the bullet and quilted the baby quilt for my brother and sister-in-law who are expecting a baby girl in June--their first.
But to "practice" I took two 10" squares from my layer cake and stippled them figuring I could always use another potholder. I thought it turned out great. So why did I decide to make wavy lines instead of stipple the quilt? Over-confidence. It'll bite you an the rear everytime.
It still looks good, but I've already decided to just do a grid on the other baby quilt I have ready to go and actually PRACTICE the stippling on my whole fabric throw before doing my mom's log cabin.
Maybe I should take a class....
Really, I'll post some pictures on here soon. I know that everyone who's read this(who am I kidding?) is dying to see some pictures. Is there anyone else out there as novice as I am? Anywhere?
