    Baby Quilt

    Last year I decided to try my hands at quilting. Just to see if, one, I could do it; and, two, would enjoy it. I signed up for a table runner class and thought “this could be fun.” A friend of my daughter was expecting a baby, and I decided it was the perfect opportunity to do a quilt. I told her to ask Kirk if he and his wife would be insulted to get a practice quilt. They were game, so I sweated, and occasionally cursed, my way through a beginner quilt. Well, baby Gabe turned one year old in May and I thought he deserved a quilt that may actually survive the washing machine. So here is Baby Gabe’s quilt 2. I’m still learning, but more importantly, I’m still having fun. This is a modification of a block from a Joann Fabrics block of the month class. Thanks for looking.

    You're doing great! The fabric and pattern work well together. Gabe is going to be happy to have that for his own. Sounds like you enjoy quilting.

    Great quilt! Very cute!

    You did a wonderful job! I do not think that is a beginner pattern! Your points look great! I think of a beginner pattern as having few points--or places that meet that show when seams that are off.

    What a beautiful quilt - just perfect!

    I have been quilting for about the same length of time as you. I decided a few months ago that having fun with fabrics is more important to me than mastering difficult blocks - although I do like to challenge myself with a new quilting skill every now and again.

    My craft room is my haven and quilting is my therapy.

    Very nice job! Sure to be loved, dragged around, laid on and under. Glad you are enjoying quilting. That’s what it’s all about.

    The quilt is awesome. It looks like lots of progress has taken place. Most importantly, you have enjoyed it. We all experience ups and downs in our growth process-some are our own doing and others are not. We need to take them all in stride, learn from them, and move on. Sometimes it requires us to back up and re-do something. But, sometimes, it is better to just abandon the project, and, move on. Keep up the great work and enjoy it.

    Great job. My first quilt was a grandbaby quilt too but it sure didn't turn out like yours. I look forward to seeing your next quilt.

    That's lovely! You really are not a beginner from the looks of that quilt. And the fact that you're enjoying yourself is the most important thing!
    Can't wait to see more of your work!

    What's next? I have been piecing and quilting my own tops for a couple of years. Everything always lead to a new challenge but I'm enjoying the process. I never know what is around the corner but I'm game to try anything. Sounds like you will do the same. Oh, I still consider myself a beginner... maybe one day .......
