Eesh! The long and short of it is, I was in no way prepared to start machine quilting on a baby quilt, even it it was only 54"x54". And that discouraged me most of all. Every time I pulled it out to try again, it just aggravated me to no end until I was ready to pull out the rotary cutter and slice it up for scraps! And, well, that wasn't really an option, now was it? So I hired it out. Found someone locally who was comfortable finishing what I had started, no matter how badly it looked, and she had it completed in less than 3 weeks. Phew! What a relief.
Without any further ado....
Bright, bold, NOT baby-ish prints, surrounded by a border of monkeys. Looking like the cutest of candy wrappers.
Look at how little she looks on the big blanket....oh, wait, she IS little!
I think she likes it. What do you think?
