I made 5 blocks and sent them; I hope they will arrive today.
It's not very often I really like what I've made, but yesterday evening I was so pleased when I finished the babyquilt I started Monday. The quilting is a first to me, using the whatyamacallit on my sewing machine. The thing you can add on to the foot so you get even spacing.
Sorry, a picture is worth a thousand words:
This was the try out version.
And this is the real thing:
Front and back, but which is which?
I like both sides!
I love this echo quilting.
The friend I've made it for is expecting her baby in two weeks and she wanted to match it to the colours of the baby room: brown and cream.
I just added a tiny bit of green-ish.
I love it!

I'll be linking up to Amanda Jean's Friday Finish.
Have a great weekend!
