This quilt is for my niece and was made with the Hunky Dory Line by Chez Moi for Moda fabric. This was my first quilt ever - I made it over a year ago. I had just gotten my sewing machine and figured quilting & sewing were the same thing. I just downloaded the pattern and started sewing. There are so many problems with it. I pressed the seams open. I didn't know anything about chain piecing so I backstitched the entire quilt. All the squares are a bit wonky. I still haven't learned the lesson to square everything up before I stitch the blocks and rows together.

The free motion swirls that I chose to quilt are so very forgiving. The quilt top was filled with puckers but the pattern hides them easily. I even got adventurous towards the end of the quilt - I quilted her name & flowers into the quilt! Besides all of my beginner's errors, I'm still very pleased with this quilt. I hope my niece enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it for her.
