    Second quilt done!

    Finished my second quilt! This one is for my 3-month old nephew and will be his Christmas present.

    Thank you! I'm learning a lot while making these - both about quilting and about my machine! I've had my fair share of "d'Oh!" moments! I usually write down what I have all my settings at, shut it all down and go do something else for a while, then come back and figure it out. And it's usually something stupid (Like the tension was wrong, or the feed dogs needed reset, or I had the spool on backwards, lol)

    I love the combination of the Chenille dots and the circles and dots around the stars on the facing side. Clever!

    I have to confess, I didn't 'choose' the fabrics. I thought it would be cheaper to buy a kit, as opposed to buying the fabric seperately like I did with the last one. Boy did I not figure that one right! The last quilt cost me about $30 in material, this one was $20 for the kit. The other one is 32x42, this one is only 24 x 32!

    Again, a d'Oh! moment that I have learned from! This one did go together a lot faster with just the square blocks, but I wish it were bigger. Oh well! It'll make a good Car-seat quilt for him, as her kids arent' the type to lug around blankets for long.

    It came out great. Looks so soft and comfy.
    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.
