Although I made several baby quilts this year, my favorite was one I mostly made out of my scraps. I just wanted to try something new so I started stitching! Here's what came out of the trying:
This was a quilt of many firsts for me: first improv quilting, first pieced back, first FMQ (more practice needed there!), first black polka-dot binding, and first quilt to give away to someone other than family or friends. When I look at the pictures again, I have a twinge of "Oh, maybe I should have kept it..." But when I think about a young mom cuddling her baby with a quilt I made! I feel proud that I sent it off.
This will also be my first time ever to link up to the Blogger's Quilt Festival, hosted by Amy's Creative Side. I have definitely enjoyed browsing through all those links in this last year since I entered the blogging world. Excited to be a part of it!
