Anyway, she is a huge Hawkeyes fan and not very 'girly' so I thought this theme was appropriate.
I tried a traditional pinwheel pattern I'd seen online, but from what I know now about quilting there's many things I could have done more efficiently.
I used my regular sewing machine with it's regular do-everything foot to machine quilt a basic diamond shape.
You can see in some of the photos that there is some puckering, but overall I'm satisfied with the results.
Did I mention I made this in under two weeks start to finish? They asked if I'd known about the baby shower beforehand when I delivered it, but nope, I started thinking about it once I received the invitation!
Overall, it was good practice and the gift was well-received. What more can I ask for?
