Finished Object! Kajsia's Pinwheels

Yes it is true! This is a quilt I finished just this weekend for a girl-friend who is having a baby this month. It was definitely a "learning" project for me...blocks leftover from the first quilt top I even made & and an attempt to do free-motion quilting on my old sewing machine (the same machine pictured here). Whew, was that an adventure!!! I'll tell you, I was certainly laughing at myself and the resulting quilting while making it.

(The whole quilt...a bit out of focus! About 40x40, I think.)

Although the quilting is completely irregular in every way, I still think it turned out pretty cute. It will keep her little one warm or give her a little play space on the ground, wacky/learner's permit quilting or not.

(Some of the "good" quilting....no pics of the toe-catching stitches! =-)

That turned out great! Hmmm - I'm going to have to employ the blurry photo idea so people can't see how my points never ever line up properly....

Looks like I am busted! Hmmmm...must be a very astute crafter! (Bet it comes with the name!)
