My first quilt!

I was able to finish the baby quilt for April and Baby Maci the day after Baby Maci was born. With the help of my Mom and one of her friends. The quilt was ready, but they helped me hand stich the binding. Not a huge fan of the hand stiching part!

The story is…. At the baby shower everyone brings a piece of fabric for the quilt. Then I took all the pieces and made the quilt. Pretty cool idea! (I didn’t come up with the idea!)

I wish I had kept track of how long it took me, becuase everyone kept asking. I’m thinking about 20 hours, but I really don’t know….

My first quilt was a success! Now I have to get Baby Owen’s quilt done. Unfotunately, he’s already a month old…. But in my defence, I was still getting fabric for that one a few days before he was born!πŸ™‚
