I can't believe it! I finished my first ever quilt--I mean a *real* quilt and it came out better than I could have imagined. Believe me, I imagined *a lot*. haha! It was so hard for me to design it but once it started coming together, it was tedious and I was tempted to quit.
Now that it is finished----oh it is so lovely. I can't wait to make another one. The next one will be much simpler though. This one was made especially for Baby K. I machine stitched the whole thing but next time....I might just entertain the idea of hand quilting it. I did something *I* think is an extra special touch. I freehandedly quilted words into it. I stitched the word JOY into it about four times. It is mixed in among swirls and twirls of stitches but *I* know it's there. It is everything K is. People comment on it often--he is a very joyous child.
He over flows with it so much that you look @ him and you feel it in your own heart--it's amazing.
See what I mean? LOOK @ that face of his. Oh & that is the quilt. ;-) Part of it anyway.
