I finally made a Christmas quilt after years of wanting to make one. The pictures are pretty poor, and the top does look better "in person." This is another first for me, this being the very first quilt I've ever made without "unsewing" a stitch! Not that it's perfect! Now I have to figure out how to quilt it. I'd like to have it done by Christmas, so that means machine quilting. I haven't practiced for awhile and feel pretty intimidated. I've had such fun putting the top together, but I hope I don't get discouraged with the quilting part of it. The last picture is a Christmas dress I made for a darling granddaughter. (It is if I can get the pictures to load!) What color thread would you use?
