Did you quilt that on your machine? It’s amazing. Nice job!
Yes, I did. Thanks! I was going to machine bind it, too, but I accidentally sewed the binding to the front instead of the back, so I hand-tacked it down. That was good, because it took more time, and I need lots of things to take up all of my time right now!
Oooooo! Can I have that one? If not, I suppose I might actually be able to handle making something with half-square triangles. When you machine quilt, do you just squiggle around randomly, or is there a pattern you trace on? I’ve always wondered.
And I FREAKING LOVE your crib bumpers. I was almost squealing when I saw what you did. I am a total under-the-sea fanatic. Half the doodles from my childhood looked just like that–with the octopus, fish, curly waves and seaweed. Swoon!
This is a beautiful quilt!! You rock!!
Melissa, I do just squiggle randomly. Sara suggested that I draw what I wanted a few times first, so my hands got some muscle memory, and that has helped with issues of uniformity. I know a lot of the pros do use stencils.
