nursing cover

I recently had a baby shower for my sister, and after seeing a nursing cover on her registry for around $40, I thought that I could definitely make it for a lot cheaper. I found a tutorial on dairy of a quilter and went to work.

The tutorial was so easy to follow! I finished the project in just a few hours. My husband was even impressed that I started and finished a project in one night :)

My first quilt!!

My first quilt is finally complete! It took me about five months to finish only because I was intimidated about quilting it. I had nothing to worry about! I quilted it using my walking foot and straight-line quilted through the diagonal of each block, stopping at the orange border. I then echo quilted around the border a couple of times.

Most of the fabrics in the quilt are Fandango by Kate Spain with a few additions to make sure I had three light, medium and dark fabrics.

I learned a lot making this quilt and of course would have done a few things differently, but overall I'm loving it! It's the perfect addition to the guest room.
