Baby Quilt & Quilting Challenge
One of the things I want to work on this year is improving my FMQ-ing. I know perfectly well that if I wait til I have a regular-sized quilt finished, I won't get in much practice time. So... I have been planning a number of small projects and the first of which is a baby quilt!
Mom-to-be is a grown-up tomboy and is the perfect mother for her three boys. In fact, she's wondered if she will be able to parent a girl... and I've assured her it will come naturally. After all, kids are kids... whether they are boys or girls!
I managed to get the quilt pin-basted and quilted yesterday despite laundry, bill-paying, and other weekend chores. While not as good as I would like, I am getting better and there wasn't too many loops and points on this project. Despite trying to emulate a blogging friend's beautiful meander, I'm finding the FMQ-ing is as individual as one's hand-writing.
I plan to bind the quilt after work... my first day back after Christmas break.... iffen I ain't too tired. Then it will be on to the next project.....
