Sweetie Pie came to visit this weekend and we worked on Christmas gifts. She has two new nieces this year in her family (born within three weeks of each other), so she thought it would be fun to make them each a baby quilt.
SweetiePie had the tops all pieced before she arrived. She said she was inspired by a similar style quilt by CrazyMom. I didn’t get a good shot of SweetiePie’s full sized quilts, but her little center blocks are all the same size.
Hester and I helped with the quilting. We quilted 1/4″ lines where all the blocks were joined and 1/4″ lines around each little center block.
Hester was very excited to be working with VeronicaViking (by decree of SweetiePie, she must be known as VeronicaViking — not just Veronica). SweetiePie got VeronicaViking last year. Isn’t she pretty with her aqua buckle on the side? I’m VERY impressed with VeronicaViking. If you’re in need of a starter machine, this is a great choice (she’s an Emerald 183). She handled the quilting, with the help of a walking foot, like a star.
SweetiePie decided to put a satin binding around the quilt edges and VeronicaViking did such a pretty job with the three stage zigzag stitch. Not a pucker in sight.
One other cute goodie that SweetiePie made was an etched casserole dish. I think these make great gifts!
Lucky for me, SweetiePie said I could share her pretty projects here in ThimbleannaLand, ’cause blogging about the big 2010 Leaf Cleanup (woohoo, we’re finally done), and a dirty house, aren’t very exciting. Thank You SweetiePie!!!
