Whew, this guy is finally done:
Unfortunately, I’m not too happy with the way it turned out. The one block that I posted the other day came out nicely, but the rest I’m not too happy with. Despite stabilizing the fabric, there are a couple of puckers and some of the FMQ didn’t come out that great.
I’m glad I tried out the FMQ though, I think I was really getting the hang of it towards the end. The back of the quilt is a receiving blanket the baby used, too. That made it kind of a tiny quilt; only 28″x28″. I bound it with some Mickey Mouse fabric I bought in the remnants bin eons ago. I was going to machine bind the quilt, but I forgot. :uhh: Luckily this guy is tiny, so I was able to hand bind it fairly quickly.
I hope Mom and little boy still like it, even if it isn’t my favorite creation!!
I recognize that receiving blanket fabric! My kids had one like it too. I think your quilt is beautiful.
Thank you so much 🙂
Kudos to you, Erin, for giving FMQ a try. It looks like you did a fine job from the photo.
Thanks Nicole! I guess I’m being too hard on myself. You know what they say, we’re our own worst critics. 🙂
