A Finish and a First

One Baby quilt Finished.
Hand quilted.
;)

The FIRST quilt for my new granddaughter-to-be!
Don't you like those scallops??
Me too.

I used embroidery floss to quilt.
It's a light green.
Mmmm.
So pretty.
This is what I used to wash away the pencil lines.
It worked like a charm.
You only need a TINY, tiny bit.
1 Tablespoon???
I guessed.
