a finish

I made this quilt for my niece who is due to have her baby next month. I got the pattern from
Amanda Jean....she has some great tutorials.

I did a simple wavy line grid for the quilting. I used a moda jelly is in the air and some white on white for the sashings. All fabrics came out of my stash.

I used Judy's technique for machine stitching the binding....I was pleased with how it came out. I did have to unstitch and restitch in a few places but I was pleased with my first attempt. I will using this method in the future for sure. Judy has a great little video on how to do this.

My machine does not like to go over pins. I usually pull them out before I get to them....this one I missed.

I leave you with a picture of my baby.....I'm sure he's reflecting on what mayhem is next on the agenda. Have a wonderful day.....thanks for stopping by.
