Here it is in all its glory, front on the left and back on the right!

I used a polyester batting on this one, very different from the cotten ones i have used before.

sort of a looser weave and a bit poofier than the cotten 🙂

I like how it turned out with its extra poofiness, no problems , no mistakes doing the borders!

I just did kind of a swirl kinda thing to quilt it. the free motion quilting gets a bit better as i go.

It’s a bit hard to see, ( got to work on my quilt picture taking too!) but you can see some of the quilting in this picture.

Another bit of a close up.

Feeling proud of myself with this one, no bonehead mistakes!!!  LOL

so next up from Volume One of Quilters Academy will be the log cabin table topper! I have a design that i plan to quilt on it. I just need to figure out how i want to mark it on the quilt!

But first i have some other sewing to get done 2 pairs of kids jammies for grandkids. my oldest grandson turns 5 on Aug 12 and my youngest granddaugher turns 3 on the 17th of Aug.  both are cut out just waiting to be sewn!

I also have a table runner that i pieced earlier this year and have sandwiched ready to be machine quilted.

I also made my two oldest grandkids quilts for their 5th birthdays so now i have to make one for little Justins 5th birthday too!

I have a very simple one to do , squares are cut out, strip sets nearly done then i just have to sew it together , sandwich, quilt etc

but at least it has some progress underway!

I also finished a skirt for one of my 6 year old Granddaughters last week. It is called Adorable charm square skirt and is a tutorial from the Missouri Star quilt company.

I used a pack of Lucys Crab Shack charm squares, but didn’t have any of the line in yardage so i found a really cute little green and white plaid that went perfectly with it.

Front is on the left, and back on the right, don’t you think the green plaid ( on the waist band and hem) goes well with the other fabrics!

Very quick to sew and it is just so cute!

hopefully i will have some progress on my other projects to show off soon!
