I'm so excited! The quilt top for our baby is complete and I made a goal for it to be my first free-motion quilted project. However, I am a little nervous because I LOVE the quilt, so I decided to start on a doll quilt for my daughter to see how I did. I studied a book called Machine Quilting: A Primer of Techniques and it helped me feel more confident to jump in. Here's the result!
A close-up. There are some jagged edges, but I'm hoping as I get more comfortable, I'll have fewer and fewer mistakes.
This doll quilt is super basic, mostly just to practice on. It's just a fat quarter sandwich.
I definitely have lots of room for improvement, but overall I am thrilled with how it turned out and confident to try it on the baby quilt. Hopefully this week!
