Default Turned baby size into Snuggle size

I had a baby quilt pinned together for forever and just kept passing it over to quilt. Probably because no prospective recipients are in the near future! Plus, now I am a "spray baster"! So, I unpinned the layers, and then tacked on some more borders. The size is perfect for the couch! Also, I totally enjoyed applying my new quilting skills. Most quilting was done with my straight stitch walking foot. I decided that practice makes perfect, so I FMQ on the spirals. The first spiral stank, but gradually I got the hang of it. Since I have discovered how to sew with metallic thread without it breaking, I used it for the stitching on the fold over binding.

You did it proud. Sometimes I wait to quilt until my skill level improves enough for what I want to do. I still have a wall hanging for my quilting room that is waiting for spectacular quilting so...............I'm not there yet, but getting closer.

Pretty Quilt. The good thing about quilting is that you can always learn something new or improve on something old. It is a changing process with every quilt.

Cute quilt and I think you've got FMQing. It is such a satisfying feeling knowing you have completed the whole quilt yourself.
