    That is a beautiful quilt, and that the couple loved it is the most gratifying feeling. Good Job.

    WHOA! Did you stop working long enough to turn the smoke alarm off? No, I didn't think so! :D That's a really pretty quilt, and I really like the labels! Great work!

    Thank you all for your compliments.

    But, you see that there are

    all straight lines, piecing and quilting
    no triangles....
    strip piecing, goes fast..
    cross hatching = fewer stops and starts...

    I am not usually a machine piecer, but there is a time and place for everything, right...

    No more quilting snobs at my house..lol

    Wow, what a job! I just love that label, beautiful work and fast too. Let me guess you didn't have much warning?

    It's funny in a way I keep telling my sister. "two weeks is plenty of time to do a baby quilt" but over and over she doesn't believe me, so I end up doing it in an evening to have it done (and perhaps to prove a point). :D

    As for the camo, perhaps that's a baby blanket in a year or twelve. :D

    Amazing !!! Did you do the cross-hatch machine quilting on a regular sewing machine? I try, but I really need a lot more practice. How do you get it so well balanced. I'm not really sure how to do the math for spacing, etc.

    Yes, I did the quilting on my regular sewing machine.

    I just sewed diagonally across the squares...no need to measure for spacing, you just aim for the corner of each square.

    Wow.....talk about a quiltathon! No doubt your machine was smoking hot.
    Such a lovely gift to receive too.
