First Quilt for CPC

I finally got the first one completed...I didn't like the way it looked without a border and had to go in (after the quilting was already done!) and add a border, and though it was a little "tricky" it worked fine, and I like the way it looks a lot better now!

These were 2 1/4" squares and I just loved the way the blues and yellows worked! I hand-pieced the entire quilt except for the border, and I machine quilted it, just because I am a slow hand-quilter. I'm excited that this will go to a little one whose Mommy was at first worried about keeping him or her. I send blessings with this baby quilt! I love being a part of this wonderful ministry!

  1. This is beautiful! I've always wanted to do a blue and yellow quilt. I'm sure the person who gets this will be thrilled with all your work. Putting on border after it was quilted most have been tricky, but it looks good!

  3. I love it. You and your yellow and blue.... ha ha. It turned out very well and I know that some baby (and it's mother) will enjoy having it.
