Well, I finished the quilt on the way to and back from the baby shower. Yes, I was too insecure to give it as a gift. My daughter gets mad at me because I always feel like my quilts are not good enough. I know the imperfections. Anyway I quilted it on my Grace frame but had a lot of trouble with the new thread I used. It is a rainbow thread from Superior and it just kept shredding and breaking. The quilting is very simple since I am fairly new to this type of machine quilting.
When I took the quilt out in the car to sew down the binding, I noticed a slight musty smell. My sewing room is in the basement and some of the batting has been around a while. Do you wash your quilts before giving them as gifts? I would love to have some feed back on this from my fellow bloggers. This one for sure will have to be washed!
