I’ll come clean. I can be a bit of a perfectionist at times. But not always. I am realist enough to know that perfection is not always achievable. But mediocrity is just plain not acceptable. So when I looked back at a few of my first posts, I shuddered but I saw the pictures of the first quilt I ever made. Beurk. Those were bad pictures. I knew I could do better.
I grabbed my camera.
And voilà, for my own piece of mind, I offer here a few more pictures of Alix’s quilt. A tad better, no?
The main fabric with those sweet and quirky characters is Meet the Gang by the incredibly talented Marisa at Creative Thursday (her blog is soooo beautiful! And I am just noticing that she has started quilting as well!)
Love love love the fabric and so does Alix who sleeps with this quilt every night! And now that it’s been washed a zillion of times (adventures in potty training!), it is so soft and comfy.
And here’s the obligatory full frontal (Bahahaha…. FULL FRONTAL… giggle giggle!!!):
And the back:
As this was my first quilt ever, I had no clue how to piece in a little patchwork strip. So I ended up just top stitching the strip to the back piece. You know what, I kind of like that! It’s fraying and rolling a bit, and I love it!
And here’s a picture of the quilt in Alix’s bedroom. I am showing the bedroom as I am planning a little makeover in the next week or so. (Don’t you think her doll needs a matching quilt?)
Stay tuned for that!
Have a great week!
