I finally did it! I finally made another quilt!
The first one I made was a Packer Blanket for my hubby. When I got the email about a baby shower for my cousin Bethany, I knew it was a good opportunity to make my second quilt.
I was able to use fabrics from my stash. I used a Mixologie (Moda) jelly roll, a grey with white dots by Michael Miller for the center of the back, and a lighter gray with polka dots for the binding. I received both of the polka dot prints in a Mystery Parcel from Whimsy Quilts. It was a great deal and I was so happy to have fabrics on hand to use since we live so far from a fabric store.
I made my own binding! Making binding and actually binding the quilt were the things that I was most apprehensive of, so I'm glad I've done both of those things now.

And then it was done! Oh my gosh it was so exciting to do the binding which was so way easier than I anticipated! I knew it wasn't a good day (chilly and kinda cloudy) to try and get a picture with mountains, but I realized I had some decent "scenery" here at home, so I did a 10 minute photo shoot with the help of my hubby. Now, on to the next one!

Congratulations Daniel & Bethany!
