Baby Steps

August 9th

I’m trying to improve my quilting skills — and like anything in life, that means practice. Lots and lots of practice. I thought it would make the most sense to start with strip quilts. Basic, bright strips of fabric that are easy enough to put together, but also challenging on the fundamentals: pinning, quilting in the “ditch” and binding.

I am happy. This is the next pattern I’m going to tackle for a certain American baby born this week in Canada.

  1. Beautiful job, Sister!

  2. What don’t you do?!?

  3. I have long had a desire to quilt – I love the artistry of it. But I am terrified. Intimidated and have nO idea where to start. Small, I guess, eh? Beautiful project, btw. Love it. Now…I’m feeling the need to sew….(which is unfortunate because I just started a knitting project!)

  4. I absolutely LOVE the colors and design you used! Gorgeous.
