    My very first quilt...

    Hi everybody, greetings from North-Europe.

    I am getting my first grandchild, so I decided to make a baby-quilt for (her?)...

    I just bought a Husqvarna embroidery-machine + software, so this a good way to train with it at the same time...

    Hardly zero hours of sewing, I yet like very much working with fabrics, too much fun!

    As a becoming grandfather, I was proud that my daughter accepted this quilt

    If this is your first quilt, then I'm not ever going to even bother finishing my first one!

    You did a beautiful quilt and your grandbaby is going to love being hugged by you via the quilt.

    Good for you!

    Well, you don´t know how many times I picked and unpicked my terrible sewing. If you look at the lines, I have a lot to learn about making good straight seams...so I strongly provoke everybody to start quilting, practice makes one a master...(I hope). Have fun and enjoy.

    Even though you got tortured with sewing, and unsewing, it came out very pretty.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Oh how precious, you did wonderfully! I just can't believe this is your first quilt! With your learning curve, I'll bet your third one will be an absolutely stupendous show-stopper!
