A Finish!

Inspired by my friend Tammie, I decided to finish something today. Got the binding on my friend, Beverly's baby quilt. She is due to have her first child (a baby boy) on Thursday. Gotta wash it tonight & get it in the mail tomorrow!

I really like how you did the lines from the corner! What an adorable quilt!

OK - I've tried a few straight line projects, and they all walk too much. How did you keep yours in place? Am I just not pinning enough?

Thanks!

With the straight lines, I've had that trouble too...

I think the key is to avoid intersecting lines. I think I quilted a few too many lines on this one. It has a couple of spots on the front that wanted to pucker. I used my Singer to quilt it, though. Using a walking foot is important. I'm anxious to try some more straight lines with the new Bernina foot I got yesterday. I need to get some more batting and sandwich a couple of quilts.

Pinning a lot is important, but on small things, sometimes I just use spray adhesive. I think they say to pin every 4 inches... I could've dreamed that... But I don't typically pin that closely.

I'm glad I could inspire :) I love the quilting on it!
