But, I did manage to finish a sweet little baby quilt that a friend asked me to make. The recipient is unknown so I just went with whatever I could find in my sewing world. At some point I bought a panel of black and white stylized animal fabric so I decided to start with that and see what happened.
It turned out fine!
(Glad I got that pedicure last week!)
Luckily I also had a lovely polka dot piece that was just big enough for the backing. Don't you love it when the stars align like that.
I also tried something new for me, wavy lined quilting, which was very easy and satisfying. I couldn't believe how fast it was and it definitely conceals many small imperfections. I'll do that again.
I always like pictures of rolled up quilts and couldn't resist having that owl take centre stage.
