the quilting experience

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?

  1. Hahaha! I have no idea if you will get a comment from an old post but this was funny enough for me to try. I am a novice. I am a novice who came to poke around and look at your old blog because I took your Craftsy class. It was an excellent class and I can't wait to try my hand at making myself a Tinker Tote. Haha! Wouldn't it be funny if the old you could see this. Hope everything is going well for you and your family. You really are a great teacher and come across on video extremely well so maybe you could teach some more, hint hint? Take good care! Beth
