I finished my very first machine quilted baby quilt!
Take a good look,
because I'll NEVER do this again!
I was sweating and wrestling with my machine.
I have SO much respect for all of you
who machine quilt, especially the larger quilts!
I love the look, now that it's done,
but I'd rather have a root canal than do this again.
This little quilt is 36" by 36" and was made
using a pattern called Kylee's Kite by Quilt in a Day.
It took me longer than a day to make this
unless you count an actual 24 hours of sewing
and then I guess you could call it "a day".
For the front I used a charm pack of "Lovely" by Moda
along with some pale yellow floral from my stash
and Kona Snow for the background.
I used a salmon gingham from Lakehouse for the binding.
The backing is butter yellow cotton sateen,
oh so soft and yummy with that wonderful sheen!!!
I used the scraps to make the Chevron border on the backside.
The quilt top was definitely FTS (fun to sew)
and I will make more of these
but I'll do the quilting by hand in the future :)
I'm listing this in my shop today.
Wish me luck!
