    My second quilt finished

    Made this one for my youngest grandson Ryan. I followed tips from board members, such as taping the backing to table top to sandwich, and using painters tape to mark lines for quilting. I used a bamboo batting, it's soft but thin, warm but not too warm for our climate. Also worked out how to finish off thread ends using a self threading needle. So many little things that make life simpler. Bright colours, but I think that is nice for a little boy. I know if I keep going I will get better and will learn more each time. The quilting is the scariest part, I just used walking foot and did straight line quilting, with some gently curving lines.

    What a great quilt, I really like it!! Never would I guess it's just your second one! The quilting is perfect, I really like how you tucked that curving line between the straight stitching!
    Is there a quilt guild or friendship group you can join? With a shared love of quilts, you'll learn and progress quickly. I see some wonderful quilts in your future!

    Just perfect and I love the bright colors!
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

    Thank you all for your encouragement, it means a lot. When I retire I will find a sewing group, but in the meantime I am flying solo. Flapping my wings like mad just hoping to get off the ground! ��
