making my first quilt
I found this simple pattern at Joanns and thought it was a great way to practice quilting without cutting up a whole bunch of fabric that I want to use for something else...
Posh Pink from Fabric Palette
The back. Notice the sewn strip in the center? Yeah, that because someone cut that wrong too....
....and finished. Quilted in the ditch around the center and the blocks and in stripes up the center. It's got a cheetah print backing but no batting in the center.
It's warm, it's cute, it's been used for nap time already. I"m calling this - successful.
............bring on the 9 patch for Miss Olive!
