I wanted to free motion quilt it all over, but as I have never done it before, I was a bit overwhelmed with it all and so put it to the side.
A couple of weeks when Mat was on nights I bit the bullet and started to quilt.
I am quite uncoordinated and I am blaming it on being left handed. I have practiced stippling, but I can't seem to get it, so I made up this all over pattern which included loops and hearts. To say that I love it is an understatement.
I am super proud of this quilt, more proud than I have been with any quilt that I have made. I know it has to do with the free motion quilting, as I actually overcame one of my fears and it worked out.
Another reason I love this quilt so much is it has some of my favourite fabrics in it. My favourite heart of all is the small liberty one. This is the first (and only) liberty fabric that I have bought, but I love it so much that I want to buy many many yards of it.
I am hoping that the teacher will love it. I have since found out more of her story and can't believe that she has given all of her love to the kids when she is going through a marriage breakup and has had to return to work for the first time in many years in order to support herself and her two daughters.
