A New Family Member

Well, it might as well be. Blood sweat and tears went into the making of this, my first quilt!
My mother-in-law was so kind to teach me how to do it. I made it for Lucy's bed and I think it turned out pretty dang good for my first go around.
I sewed the entire top myself, with my mother-in-law giving me instructions here and there, but I mostly did it at home by myself.
When it came time to quilt however, we were at her house using her NICE machine and she helped ALOT.
My mom helped me finish it off with the binding (the edge) today, which I think looks so cute! Lucy has been waiting for this for quite a while, I sure hope she appreciates it.
Check out that last picture, those were a lot of strips! I'm so proud of it and excited to make another one! Maybe before this baby comes, I can't see me being able to make a quilt with 3 kids...
