Last night I decided I needed a new big project, since I finished Amy's customized BINGO set (hopefully pictures to come), so I decided to make my first quilt.

I bought this Winnie the Pooh fabric last summer with the intention of sewing a baby blanet for Keegan, but I don't know what I was thinking. I mean, make a quilt in the two weeks between graduating and moving to New York? Unlikely. It turns out that Ember's due to have her baby, Aria Elizabeth, in August, so that gives me a perfect excuse to renew my quilt-making aspirations. My mom sent me the fabric recently, shortly after my brand new sewing machine arrived (!!).

Isn't she a beaut? I've yet to name her, but she does have a mouse fingerpuppet as a mascot, so I figure that counts for something.

Anyhow, this part of the quilting process has been surprisingly easy and quick. True, I messed up on one part, but I'm hoping that Aria won't notice or mind.

Next: Check out some of the fabric stores in the Garment District to get material for the border and back. And maybe some advice on how to do the rest!
