I've posted before that I wanted to make a quilt out of Lexi's baby clothes...but I wanted to practice before I started cutting up those precious itty bitties. So I started about 3 weeks ago and made a small quilt. It's about 32" x 32" and is the perfect size for a tummy time mat. This will be given to a pregnant friend of mine. I have to say, I think it turned out wonderfully! There are obvious visibile mistakes, but it's my first time doing ANY kind of sewing project more laborsome than sewing on a button. If I could go back and do things different...I would have made sure my seams were spot on...I didn't realize how much a 1/4 inch can throw things off. I also would have used purple thread to quilt it instead of the white. But in all, I'm proud of it.
I have one more practice quilt for another pregnant friend. Then I MIGHT be brave enough to cut up Lexi's clothes.
