sharing from my heart to yours
Ever had one of those projects that you start...
then get frustrated with...
and forget about until you're housecleaning ages later?!
Yup... me too!
Ran into the quilt that I started two years ago when I was pregnant for Sky. I've been saying that I should finish it before this baby comes. I guess I just needed to actually SEE it to get myself more motivated! (Also thanks to a friend of mine who insisted that I HAD to!) :]
It was a first time sewing project for me...at least on my own and on my own machine! So between learning the machine, working with frustrating fabrics, and trying to figure out HOW 'quilting' works exactly was a long process (two years I guess!). It's more of a blanket than a quilt, but it has the quilted squares for the front panel. If I were to start over today I'd probably do it differently, and it's definitely not perfect, but it's done...and in time for Baby #2!!! :)
Here's a few photos of the finished product
The blue and white stripe is a soft fuzzy fabric on the back. Was hoping to have more extra of it to make some regular simple 'blankies' but not sure I was that lucky!
