On this one I had the binding seam connecting on the short side and it didn't leave me much room to work. Learned lesson one, put the bidning seam on the long side. Learned lesson two, I still suck at quilting on my domestic machine. I cannot get speed right. I'm too impatient to go slow but break needles when I try to move fast. I think I find a happy medium but then I can't move in a consistent manner and my stitch sizes are different. I'll take my mid-arm for quilting any day. Finally, lesson learned number three, I cannot machine bind, no matter my pinning or care, and have the sew lines match up on both sides. If you click on an image, you will lines just inside the binding on some sides. That's just the way it is. I hope my partner doesn't mind. The one that is really noticeable I left because I thought it actually looked kind of neat in the overall quilting.
Anyway, DD says she likes this one so its hers.
The next two are for my swap partner and are front and back shots. Not perfect but I like them. My swap partner said she liked bright colors and not dusty mauve or blue. Not the calico hues, basically. So, I went with playfully bright and hopefully 4 different schemes (being 2-sided) that would give her an option no matter her mood.
