Another Baby Quilt Done!
I love this little quilt!
I quilted about a quarter inch on either side of the seams and I'm really happy with how it turned out. I wanted to keep it basic but didn't want to stitch in the ditch. I think it added just the right amount of interest.
I bought a new walking foot for my machine (which it turns out has nothing wrong with it other than being an older, kinda crappy machine!) and I love it. It's the best twenty dollars I ever spent! I used it for the binding too and I'll never go back to my quarter inch foot for that. I always feel like I'm fighting with the binding, trying to feed it through and keep it straight, but with the walking foot it was sooo much better.
My little helper :)
I washed and dried it after I finished to give it that soft, crinkly look. I'm thinking about putting this one in my shop :)
Happy Weekend Everyone!
