quiltI love to quilt.  I am not that good yet but last Christmas I made 2 kid’s rag quilts, one tie blanket (that you sew together, not just tie), and an actual quilt for my daughter.  She was very surprised and loved it.  I used a regular machine, no walking foot, so I didn’t do a lot of actual “Quilting” on the back but enough to make it nice and hold together.  I did what is called “stitch in the ditch” and used Moda fabric layer cake.  I love Moda, their fabrics are the best.  Here is my Pinterest board for the quilting ideas that I have found.  I also love the Missouri Quilt Company.  They have a lot of videos and are very easy to follow.  I am not working on the “You’ve Got Mail” quilt for a special lady.  For Christmas I made quilted table runners and gave them away for presents, it was fun and easy.
