Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Home Decor
Style Classic, Whimsical on

What materials did you use? wool batting cotton fabrics on

What are you most proud of? Almost all of the blocks have seams that interlocked just like on the quilting shows on TV and the fact that it is my first pieced quilt to ever finish!! on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience is a virtue - each block took me an hour to piece and I consider myself a fast sewer. Also remember no one is perfect so no quilt should be either - I just keep reminding myself the purpose of the quilt is to warm Connor and remind him how much I love him - he won't notice all of the "mistakes" nor will his mommy so I don't need to worry about them either (and there are more than enough)! on

how did you finance the back of the baby quilt? did you have it quilted? or was the blocks the quilting?

I used a flannel quilt backing in white for the back.

I used the old fashioned sandwich method to finish the quilt. The wool batting said to quilt 2 to 4 inches apart. The 16 squares that make up the large 12 pinwheel blocks were each 3 inches so I did the stitch in the ditch around each one and then my husband suggested I stitch in the ditch around the "spokes" of each pinwheel as well so it would give the pinwheels more depth so I did and he was right. Of course not all of my stitches stayed in the ditch but once the quilt was washed and dried it wrinkled up so nicely that you couldn't tell (and my sister was too appreciative to mention any mistakes she might of seen).

Marchelle, this is so sweet. There are no mistakes when it's made with love.
