Progress of the day
Wow! I'm making it through my stash of collected quilt tops, washing, ironing, folding... picking one to work on...
I also got a lot done on the Baby quilt today!
**I had a lot of help from B, in choosing the fabric for the backing. She is quite confident in her selections!**
I am new to machine quilting, as I've only done one other, that way... But wanted to give it a whirl.
I have learned one thing. As a beginner to machine quilting, I should always use matching thread to the background. As you make a lot of mistakes! Lesson learned.
But over all, I like it. I just need to finish the edge tonight and its done.
I've decided I should name the quilt, "Jonas Brothers, Love Bug Quilt" As while I was sewing, B came bouncing in to the beat of my machine, Rocking out loudly to this song, Love Bug, by the Jonas Brothers, Over and over and over.... :-)
OH well, It's better than anymore High School Musical songs!
(those with youngish kids will know this to be true!)
Oh, and at the same time did I mention that she was dressed as a Ninja, jumping around yelling Ke-ogh!
SO perhaps it should be called "Ninja, Jonas brother, love bug Quilt for baby girl Lang"...
