You might need to sit down, two posts from Tanya this week. I've been slacking lately. At church we have a baby showers for the new moms and I was asked to be on committee that helps with them, I guess they thought that was I needed out of my comfort zone. I usually am better with dealing with the 10 and under crowd. We do freezer meals or tie a baby quilt. So far everyone has chose the meals.
Anyway this is a quilt I finished for my gift. I usually give a rag quilt, but chose to give this quilt that I refer to it as a practice quilt. My points are not the best, my plan to work with 8 1/2 inch square cut in half for HST's wasn't so great. I actually quilted this instead of having Richard. I did borrow his machine, my little Brother is great for simple things, but doesn't have the neck room or speed of his Janome. I decided to quilt the jack prints with tighter vertical lines, and leave open space on the white and owls. Overall it turned out quite well for a beginner. Yes, Richard did bind it. I still struggle there, but am getting more daring.
I am glad that it is Saturday. Jared's Birthday, James' Graduation, and the last day of school, and baby shower in one week is a lot of work. Then throw in Julia cutting 2 new teeth, not a good combo.
Richard taking over to show off some details in this quilt. Tanya did some amazing work on this quilt as seen here on the back you can see that she quilted some tight and other parts not. Tanya is new to this quilting stuff and I am sure if you wanted to be critical you could be. Tanya is critical enough for herself. I am proud of her and would like to publicly say so.
Here is a close up of some of the quilting you can see the edges there are some rough starts and stops but it looks wonderful.
Here is an example close up.
