    Here it is.... a long time coming.

    Back in January, I started a quilt/ baby blanket for a friend.

    This is my first completed quilt, as I have only been sewing about 6 months.

    It is not the best work, but I can see improvement in the few months that I have been working on it.

    I hand quilted the butterflies and the dragonflies. I also learned that I needed more contrast between my quilting thread and fabric. It's a process. :oops:

    Also, I learned how to use my sewing machine.... I have been sewing everything down the wrong side... no wonder why my quilting foot seemed ineffective!! doh

    Very pretty...I actually like how the quilting thread goes with the fabric...makes for a subtle design.
