    the quilt that almost wasn't...

    I had more trouble with this little baby girl quilt than I have time to describe! Thank goodness it's done in time for the shower I am taking it to on Saturday! Wonks, eyelashes, uneven quilting, dye runs and all! The upside: Made from stash with no pattern, and my FMQ is coming along--slow but sure!

    I know quite a few little girls, who'd LOVE to be given that quilt! It's beautiful!

    Really, really cute baby girl quilt! I am only just venturing into the FMQ myself so I loved seeing yours. You did a wonderful job on the entire quilt. Great job.

    Well done, now you have a new design "the baby girl stash quilt." I enjoyed seeing you FMQ I am just now thinking about it, played around with it for a couple of days but had to ask some questions. I liked yours and feel encouraged by it.
    I also think that by the time I am up an hour each day God has laughed until His ribs ache.

    You all are so nice!
    "Winking", LOL!
    I really appreciate the input. I'm hoping that by posting my photos, I will be able to look back at what I've done and be able to see how much progress I've made. I'm making it my goal to document all my quilts here, and by my next birthday (just shy of a year), I want to see a vast difference in my work.
    Everyone just starting FMQ, just keep working at it! It really does get easier and easier. Each time I feel like it takes less mental and physical effort to make it happen.
