Late, late at night, my dh and I snuck into my mother-in-law's room and draped her with her birthday gift. Thanks to my friend Kelli, I was able to give her something that she really liked. We had a quilting class, and while I can sew, I was afraid that this was going to be way above my skill level. I've only pieced one other quilt; well, technically, it was a table runner. I stitched it up by hand and that's so very different from machine stitching. The fabric on this baby kept scrunching together as if I was trying to gather it, which I so wasn't. I loved the color combination and will definitely try another one. Maybe I can get those bumps to lay down.
