Nancy's Notions has done it again - suckered another person into the wonderful world of quilting! Jessica saw this totally cute quilt on their site and thought she was buying a quilt top! When the package arrived with lots of pieces of fabric and Nancy's 'broad' assembly instructions, she almost sent it back, but the fabrics were just too cute!!!! Now, what to do. . . Jessica found me on the internet and we were off on a quilting adventure!!
I was honored last night by getting to help Jessica learn to quilt! This was the first sewing she had done since sewing a body pillow in Home Ec in High School!
This is her first 1/4 inch seam!!!! Yea!!!! She has a better 1/4 inch seam that most of my other students! She is consistant and has a beautiful seam from start to finish!!! The coolest thing is she is not afraid of the machine. She even cut out fabric pieces with the rotary cutter!!!!
We cut out pieces - and boy does this quilt have pieces - and got the center focus panel sewed together. We fussy cut out the blocks with the cute animals and then sewed the green sashing between them.
