Before I show you pictures of my progress with baby quilt #2, I thought I would share the results of the hand quilting project I started a couple of weeks ago.
As you can plainly see, I have lots of room for improvement, but I got it done! I have pretty long nails, so my thimble just didn't feel comfortable at all. I basically decided to work without it and use my nails to push the needle through once I managed to get 3 stitches onto it. The "rocking" motion wasn't as easy or smooth that way, but it definitely got better with practice.
I made the backing last night so this pillow is done. Full reveal and pictures of the whole thing later this week.
Besides this pillow, the main project occupying my quilting time is baby quilt #2. I'm using Jeni Baker's Pyramid Dance pattern (Quilty Magazine) and I pulled a bunch of fat quarters from my stash in shades of blue and green, with a bit of orange.
I've got a couple of rows pieced already.
I am loving these cute babies...
And this awesome print (can't remember what designer these are from, so if you know, please leave a comment!)...
I'm hoping to have a quilt top before the weekend so I can start quilting and it all done for the end of next week!
Will be linking up at Lee's for WIP Wednesday... You should too!
