first quilt

Posted by sarah
I decided to make a baby quilt for my friend Chris' new little girl, Emily. It turns out that quilts are quite easy to make, but the process can be highly time-consuming. Choosing the fabrics alone was a little daunting, as The Workroom has a wide selection of very lovely and very quiltable fabrics; I spent a good 30 minutes or so in the store before deciding on the fabrics pictured below (click image to enlarge).


Measuring, cutting out, sewing together, and pressing all the squares required the most time. Other than that, all the topstiching was quick and easy -- they're only straight lines. The last image shows a close-up of the names I embroidered.
