Here's the back.
I pieced in the baby's name to the quilt back instead of
adding it as an appliqued tag afterwards.
Details for you out there who like that kind of thing.;)
- Simple diagonal quilting lines.
- Each block is 4"
- 64 blocks altogether.
- 6" wide white border.
- Quilt measures - 43"x43"
Have fun quilting today!
I'm adding this to sew and tell friday!

And how, you may ask, did you get your blocks to be so perfect?
I had a little (lot of) help.
Triangles on a roll come in real handy.
I'm pretty good at....
I'm not good at...
You get the picture.
This little piece comes right off!
I'm OFF to make some more!

I cut a few strips 1 1/2" wide.
sewed that on the back side.
This is where my quilting skills come in handy.
It was just like doing binding on a quilt! ;)
Rolled it over and top stitched it down.
A new hem.
A new dress!!
Then, I thought I'd share with you a simple trick.
Look under your machine.
I've had my sewing machine for 2 years and never noticed...
there's a trap door under there!!!?
I was contemplating taking the WHOLE bottom piece off to clean the lint.
Who knew there was little door there???
I like that little door idea a LOT better than
the BIG sewing machine OPERATION I was going to attempt!
note: Victoria over at bumble beans read my post and
told me there was a lot of lint farther back!
AAAH! I guess I've got to do another post on
How I managed to get my machine apart and
then couldn't figure out how to get it back together again...
