|New mom of two weeks. Likely this was taken with a 110 pocket camera..|
but if I had not had this baby boy, I am not sure the quilting bug would have bit at all!
|Is it obvious that I did not know if I was expecting a boy or girl?|
This beauty is technically not a quilt, since it did not occur to me at the time to tie or quilt it. I just whipped up all the little squares, no matter what the fabric content (mostly poly flannels(!), some stretch fabs(!), and even pre-quilted fabric I had used for a bunting. Nevertheless, this quilt survived brutal abuse and hundreds of washings over the years, and it led to my passion for quilting!
From there, I next made a Carpenter's Square wall hanging, inspired from a library book.
|I hand quilted the motifs with no regard for thread, knots, or the back of the quilt at all...|
Update: Looks like I missed the boat again - the linky part is closed! Does this type of thing happen to you all the time too?
