Well, not in a bad way! I just finished my third quilt of 2011 this weekend! For this quilt, I used the Moda Bake Shop Baby Pinwheel pattern with Prairie Points and Moda A Breath of Avignon fabric. The background is white Kona, backing is a quilter's cotton from JoAnn, and the binding is a solid from Moda Bar Harbor since I couldn't find anything else that matched at the LQS.
For the quilting, I stitched in the ditch in the main body of the quilt. That's harder than it seems, especially when you're using white thread on such brightly colored fabric! After I finished, I went and bought the edgestitch foot for Frannie so it should be much more precise in the future. In the outer border, I tried out a feather design. I'd never done this before and was planning to use a stencil, but got frustrated and just drew it on freehand with a pencil.
I was super pleased with the way it all turned out until I took it out of the washing machine and noticed all the pencil marks were still there and the bright colors were showing through the white! Doh! Panic ensues!! Back to the washing machine - still there! Aaackk! I did some research and decided to try to wash it with ammonia and it finally came out. Yippee! Quilt is saved. Good news, since my mom is buying it from me to give to her friend's baby boy on the way.
