Off to Val's and she had a beginning quilter book to use as a guide. It is funny that the trap door to most of my crafts has been making projects for my Precious Princess Pepperoni. She likes to be on comfy beds and I figured that I could make my first quilt for her. Val taught me how to measure and cut fabric, steam with her awesome iron, and sew the pieces together.
I assembled my first quilt top and did a damn fine job if I do say so myself.
I then went home and started the second quilt in the book. It went much faster since I was down to a routine. I made some measuring errors and had to un-sew some of the pieces. This one is a little larger and will be assigned to Mr. Bailey Boy named for Baileys and Cream.
The next day, I went to Beverly's Fabrics and bought a few other pieces to finish the third quilt in the book. I think that this one will go to Tony and April's new baby since it has the whole swim theme going for it.
I also completed the small kit that I had purchased at Joann's in Ft. Collins when I went out shopping with Susie.
Val and I are going to be meeting with a quilter who will actually quilt the top and the bottom with some filler in between.
