Good News! Yesterday I rented time on a long arm quilting machine and worked on my Skill Builder Sampler Quilt! I had a lot of fun trying new things in each of the blocks. None of them are perfect, but it is a Skill Builder, right?
I borrowed a stencil to do something special in the middle of the feathered star.
Best News. I have the best baby in the whole world. No, don't bother to argue, it is true. :) I took her to the quilt shop with me and she played happily on the floor the whole time. Some fussing when she had a messy diaper or was hungry or ready for a nap, but she was Amazing! I brought an exersaucer for her to play in and a backpack carrier for her to ride in, but didn't have to use them at all. She just played on the floor with her toys - thankfully she can't crawl yet! I figured taking care of her added an extra hour onto the quilting process, but it was well worth the extra rental time to finally have the quilt done...well, almost done...
Wish me luck!
Updated: I did it! And it wasn't even that bad. ;) Off to bind!
