Babies Don't Keep Quilt

Well, if you quilters had seen me put this thing together you would have either laughed or cringed --probably cringed. I had all sorts of problems pop up that I didn't know how to solve so I am the queen of camouflage. I surely won't show you the back even thought it does have a fabric backing. I tried to use my new walking foot so the fabric wouldn't move and apparently I don't know how to use that because it wasn't walking. I guess that will be trip to the quilt store for instructions. I had such fun making this though. I did the lettering then printed it on inkjet fabric by Jacquard. This is for daughter, Macaulay.

Calligra-FUN UPDATE!!  I love posting my students Calligra-FUN pieces. This is Jane at Painted Heart Studio and I love it!  Good work, Jane!!

Very cute Martha.
The walking foot must attach in 2 places: the regular slot for feet and the prong type thing onto the arm. Scroll down to see photo.
