She responded with a story about her daughter-in-law having a shower in 10 days - in Indiana. She wanted a quilt that would "make everyone say 'Wow'".
The problem? I didn't even have any fabric in my stash that could be used. And, again, because we live is a small town with great limitations, a challenge of finding Winnie the Pooh fabric was difficult. My solution? My brilliant idea (I think anyway)? Flannel receiving blankets from our favorite store (Walmart)!
I added a few contrasting fabrics that coordinated well. The end result? A big block quilt with giant flying geese in just a few days. Another deadline met. The house work was pushed aside and simple, easy to prepare meals were on the menu.
This was my first actual complete free-motion quilted quilt! I was terrified to start it! I practiced and practiced and made a few adjustments and then I sat down with "the quilt". Again, I emphasize, I was so nervous! So Scared! Such a mess! Finally, I just started it... I combined loops with meandering and viola! I am pleased with the end result.
And, another baby will be comfy and cozy and wrapped in love!
