Date: May 2012
Reason: I have collected a lot of eye spy fabrics. I wanted to put a little boy's quilt together. I was also secretly hoping it would tickle the fancy of my friend who has a little boy.
Fabric: I've been collecting fabrics from so many sources for so long. Many of them have been precut to 4" squares for ease of use later on.
Lessons: This is only the second piece that I've machine quilted using a darning foot. I need to remember to keep the needle in the down position when shifting the quilt and to hold the quilt firmly in place when starting again to make sure it doesn't move. There are a lot of little jaggedy lines that I'm sure will go away with practice!
Thoughts: I love machine quilting!! Must do more!!
