After three years in the making I finished machine quilting a baby quilt. I started quilting this about 3 years ago. Lily is now three.
Better late than never?

What made it a chore was the outside boarder. I cross hatched the middle then used this curving border that had 8 rows of stitching going in big and little curves. I lost the boarder stencil so had to copy it off of what I did before I set it aside 3 years ago. Another UFO off the list.

It feels good.

Pictures. We want pictures. Congrats on finishing it.

I really enjoy quilting. I love to play with fabrics, colors and pictures. I recently discovered how much fun applique can be. As I love making pictures, landscape quilting can be challenging, but seeing the picture come to life is so rewarding.

Way to GO!!! Done is way better than sitting around for-never never land.! Hey at 3 she will appreciate it more and spit-up on it less.

Good for you for finishing
