Spring to Finish

Well I had great hopes to get three baby quilts done but with sick kids and machine temper tantrums I was only able to finish one baby quilt and one little quilting sample. My kids are fighting over the small one and the baby quilt will be mailed to a good friend.

I love this baby quilt. Much smaller than I had originally planned but love it. It was based on a Ricky Tims design from this book. I chose the most basic one to start and hope to move on to the more challenging ones with curves. Curves do scare me a little though. I am really happy with the way the border quilting turned out. I used freezer paper cut out to the template. I think freezer might be my new favorite quilting tool!

I am trying a new label method. I am printing iron on transfers. I hope they work out well. The computer design looked good and I am waiting for hubby to print them for me. I have been little label lazy of late and it is good to get back into them.

Apologies for the layout. I am still learning the ropes. Overall I guess this has been a success. One done is much better than none.

  1. I like that Ricky Timms book, but I haven't tried much from it. Maybe it is time to pull it out?
