Again, I must remind you, I had no idea what I was doing. I looked at all the white fabric and found some that was cheaper than the others. Turns out it wasn't 100% cotton, but that's okay, right?? So I bought it and went home and started on the Periwinkle quilt. Somewhere along the way, I realized that I probably shouldn't have mixed cotton and whatever the white fabric was, so I put it away.
It sat in a drawer for awhile until I realized I needed a quick baby quilt. I pulled it out and thought "why not?" I had all the triangle pieces sewn together, I just needed to trim and put them together.
This is the way Jenny put them together in her tutorial:
Notice the white? You can tell it's not 100% cotton.
My sweet hubby isn't into quilting but he loves helping with designs and placement. He suggested I try something different. This is the design we decided on. Notice the double wedding ring quilt underneath? My husbands grandmother and great aunt made it.
I quilted it with the walking foot and did wavy lines. You will notice the binding isn't finished. I finished sewing the binding on the drive to the baby shower! Boy was I cutting it close, thank goodness it was a two hour drive. We got it folded, wrapped in tissue paper and stuffed in a gift bag as we drove up.

Now I know to buy quilters cotton and I try to buy from a quilt shop whenever I can. I feel like there is always something to learn with quilting/sewing. My next projects are another baby quilt (my first time trying applique), burp cloths, changing pads, and then on to Halloween costumes. I'm going to be busy the next few months!
