Show And Tell – Baby Quilt

I have been quilting for almost three months now.  So far, I have two completed quilt tops and nine other quilts at various stages (some just started).  Yes, I think I do have some OCD tendencies! And, I will probably add to the quilt tops before any of them get completed, sooo…  I mentioned earlier that I did some quilting a long time ago.  I thought I’d share a baby quilt I made for my dear younger son just before he was born – 21 years ago!  It’s a small baby quilt with bunnies on it.  I machine quilted and machine embroidered, and painted some features with acrylic paint.  It has withstood the test of time, but back then, quilting was a free for all for me.  I just used fabrics I liked regardless of type and blend.  Rather than quilt it, I tied it.  And now, it sits on a rocking chair in dear younger sons room.  It makes me smile, every time I have the occasion to peek in.  And, I am still eying his room for my future sewing room 🙂
