Wonky Log Cabins
Machine quilted on my Plain Jane DSM with some wonky squares - my first time trying these.
I guess I didn't botch it up too bad all things considered. I don't think a child somewhere is going to inspect the quilting so it's kind of fun to practice something new.
And it did add a nice cuddly texture when washed. I sewed the binding on by machine too. I don't really like the look and I'm not good at it but it is recommended for kid's quilts by the places where I usually send quilts (Wrap-a-Smile or Quilts Beyond Borders). I think it took me longer to sew on the binding than to quilt the darned thing. My top thread kept breaking every 8 inches or so. I used the blanket stitch on the machine. Never again.
The backing is some happy polka dots.
This was my January goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes (#170)
