I told you my circle of friends and relatives decided to have a
Here's another gift....
Winging it's way to the new mommy and daddy!
I just LOVE making baby quilts!
I had some backing fabric I liked....
but not QUITE enough.
A pieced section solved my problem.
This fabric is so soft and sweet.
You can maybe see my simple quilting lines too.
Just followed along next to the blocks....
No marking necessary.....
EXCEPT for the white borders!!
For those I used a ruler and bamboo skewer.
Don't you have bamboo skewers in your sewing room????
I DREW a line with the skewer that left
a DENT in the fabric.
I had to draw the line JUST before sewing.
It was pretty easy to see...
so I followed that as I sewed across that 4" border.
There is a tool that's sold...
can't remember the name of it...
but it also makes an indentation in the fabric
that you can follow.
THAT's what gave me the idea.
