only 11 months late!
Last night I managed to finish my neice's first birthday present, a pink and purple cupcake quilt. The fact that her 2nd birthday is in less than 3 weeks was quite an incentive to finally get it finished, I mean I know she won't realise that her auntie was 11 months late, but I was beginning to worry she'd be a teenager before I finished it. Don't know why it took so long, could have been that there was no design and I just made it up as I went along, which was fun, but less fun when I tried to work out if I'd made enough blocks, and when it came to put it all together.
I wasn't pleased with the quilting, I used a free motion foot, and whatever I did couldn't get a decent tension on the back, it would be ok for a while and then go like this... any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?
