I hand quilted just the middle block. The rest of the quilt is just hand tied.
I'm now 6 months along in this pregnancy. We're waiting to find out the gender this time. I'm so excited to have that surprise on the big day. We already have a boy and girl, so we will be super pleased to have either gender.
The only down side to waiting to find out the gender is that I can't get sewing on pretty girly things, or cute boyish things. So far, I 've had to settle with making a few gender neutral bibs. However, my big project lately has been a very colorful and crazy looking quilt. I finished the quilt top, quilt "sandwich", tied it, and hand quilted the middle block. I'm working on the binding now.
This is my first quilt EVER. I've just been trying to pick up tips on blogs and such online. Here's a few that have been very helpful...
- The Purl Bee has some great info here
- and CHICKPEA SEWING STUDIO also has a great pdf quilting tutorial .
- Another favorite tutorial is from Cluck Cluck Sew on how to make the disappearing nine patch quilt squares.
- About.com had great pics for helping me with the corners of my quilt here
Here's our little one at 18 weeks.
