Project Code Name: Sewing Guinea Pig Subject: Ray of Sun

  • Project Code Name : Sewing Guinea Pig
  • Subject : Baby Quilt Blanket for Solenne.
  • Mission : Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make your first quilt – for even more of a danger factor, do so without a pattern. 


I mentioned in my entry about Solenne’s shower that I would post about the gift I made for her.Solenne’s mom is no shrinking violet and isn’t a “pastels” kind of girl, so in that spirit, I made a wild and loud baby quilt for them.

It was my first attempt, so I apologize little Solenne that you had to be the Guinea Pig, but all in all it was a ton of fun and as far as first attempts go I was pretty pleased.  I will probably inflict this new found talent on others.  Be warned!

 I’ve been reading up on quilting etc, so I think I know how I can make some improvements on my technique.  Lucky for me, another friend is having a baby, so I have my next victim  guinea pig   gift recipient already lined up.  Hahaha, poor “Ruby” Cheryl Jr.

[…] She was a good sport all day.  Must have been a long one for her.   Solenne was well spoilt and got a ton of very beautiful gifts, including my gift (hahahahah) – I blogged about it here […]
