A quilt for Joey!

A quilt for Joey.... he was born Sunday so I had to hurry up and finish this one!!!




So little Joey is getting this....




It is from the pattern in the latest Quilty called Chevron and on. I used a combination of chicopee by Denyse schmidt and Michael Miller fabrics. I dont know why I bought these but when I looked at the bedding she had on her baby shower list, they were perfect.



My plan was to practice FMQ on this... but little children had been playing with my machine settings. I have never ripped out so many seams in my life... so i decided to do color thread (stepping outside the box for me!) and do my traditional straight lines.





The back is left over peices of the Michael Miller fabrics. Big dots, little dots and stripes. Binding is the grey dots.....

The pictures are horrible because we have rain forecasted for the next few days and its dark in here! But... wanted to finish this and share it on TGIFF Octoberquest.... but i read the rules and one per week, this makes more than one... so... its posted here:



I have one other baby quilt to finish and they will be off in the mail for my great nephew and great niece! My goal is to finish it today for one more TGIF Friday finish!!!

How sweet! I, too, want to experiment with FMQ but don't want to "ruin" any of my projects, so I do mostly straight lines. I know I could practice on scraps, but then I would waste my precious thread (ha ha).
Nice job.

A wonderful welcome gift for a little man!!! Well done, they are both adorable....
Reminds me of my 3 boys, and I am asking myself if they really were so small???? Smile, when I see the baby, and then look at my bears, it is sometimes hard to believe....
