And here she is after a nice tumble in the dryer, crinkly and cute as can be!
I must say that the crinkle effect really hides a lot of messes I made.
I learned a lot from this quilt.
- When you piece the half-square triangles, it helps to have that seam on top so that you have a prayer of a chance of sewing at the right spot. Good thing to learn.
- Little polka dot binding really ups the adorable factor.
- I need to make smaller quilting sts. This may be impossible for me. I'm taking a hand quilting class at The City Quilter in February. Hopefully I can do it and quilt smaller sts and not get my wrists into major ache mode.
- I loved doing this, all of it. From selecting and buying the fabric, cutting, sewing and then all the hand-work, it was such fun to do.
