Quilt-a Long, part 2

the second part of the quilt-a-long was embellishment and making the quilt "sandwich". It went fast. I chose to embellish with applique because it is something i have never done before and am pretty leary of. See my little stars? Next is the quilting part. I have been practicing free motion quilting so hopefully that will go as easy and smooth as all the other steps have.

what a cute, tiny little quilt! If Craig would stick around for a while i might have time to do something like that. I just made a photo board for Zoe's room, and have been looking at the cushion I'm trying to make for a week now. It'll be cute, I promise :)
