Project

Not 6 hours for me, but cute & easy!

What are you most proud of? I'm proud of the embroidery on the bottom strip (a butterfly and her name). I'm also proud that I completed this from start to finish over the course of a long weekend. No procrastinating! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to wash the cotton first. Two of my fabrics shrunk a lot. Also, avoid patterns with strong linear designs as they won't line up right if the fabric shrinks or goes off the grain after washing.

Q&A with Janine M.

Nisedd asked:
How much fabric did you need for the quilt?
Janine M. answered:
It depends on how big you want to make the quilt. The pattern shows exactly how much you need of each piece. For this particular one, I needed the following pieces: 0.5 yard; 1 yard; 1.33 yards; 1.5 yards; 2 yards; 3 yards; plus 3/4 yard of binding and quilt batting. For a baby quilt, I use just the first 3 measurements of fabric, plus binding. Hope this helps!
