Practice Progress and a Successful Gift

I'm done with the quilting on the practice quilt. I'm glad I decided to practice and get used to my new machine before tackling a "real" project. Today I'll get the binding on and call this one done. It'll be a donation next time one is needed.
Some of the spirals turned out better than others, but overall it's OK. Every wobble shows, but that's to be expected because of the high contrast between the black thread and the white fabric. I still need to remove the blue markings at the centers.

In other news, CJ liked the texture quilt I made him. Cotton and fleece on the front, minkee on the back, and crinkly in selected spots. Perfect for nap time!

  1. A practice quilt is a great idea with a new toy!! Once you wash it those imperfections won't be so glaring to you! That minky looks super snuggly...sweet naptime!

  2. I think it looks great! And your texture quilt looks like it is a big hit with the little cutie.

  3. Congratulations on finishing the practice quilt. But mostly, I'm excited that CJ loved the quilt you made him. :)

  4. The quilting looks really good in the photo. Congrats on getting the practice quilt done. Have a very happy New Year.
