Apparently I felt confident in my quilting abilities after finishing the quilt from my previous post - because the next quilt I sewed was very ambitious for a beginner. But I loved the pattern and LOVED the quilt - which made sewing it much more fun. I've discovered that I really need to love what I'm making or else it will just get put on a shelf - and remain unfinished for years. Anyone else find that too???
Anyway, this quilt is CluckCluckSew's Raw Edge Circle tutorial found here.
This was the first quilt that I free-motion quilted. (I did free-motion quilt one table runner as a gift prior to this - along with a lot of practice). I put spiral circles in each circle and did loop-de-loops around the circles. Maybe you can see that better here...
This was a birthday present for my best friend's baby boy's first birthday. So, I used Alexander Henry's Traffic Jam on the back. He loves those trucks and cars!
The quilt ended up being around 35x49 - perfect for his crib. I love seeing a baby with a quilt!!!
(and yes, I made him his hat too)
