My recent obsession with stripes continues.
One of my employee’s daughters just had a little girl. I decided to whip up a quilt for the wee one. This is my 3rd attempt at “quilting”. I use quotation marks because all I really do is sew some squares or strips of fabric together and attempt to “quilt” them at the end. Key word, attempt.
Here’s attempt #1:
And now…attempt #3:
I had to kindly explain to Ike that this wasn’t his. (And yes, he has a Wubba with him at all times. Obsessed much?) Luckily the home it is going to has multiple dogs so I don’t feel quite so bad about him stomping on it. Don’t worry, I will recommend they wash it…
I used this tutorial for the striped top and this tutorial for the quilting. I was going to do a how-to…but no one should be taking sewing advice from me. It’s not pretty. The quilt turned out cute enough. I definitely need more practice but I know “it’s the thought that counts” will get me through on this one.
What’s your favorite beginner quilting pattern? Have you attempted to quilt? Do share!
