I made a quilt top! Not the one I planned to make first. But, I had a bunch of flannel pieces left over from all these super fun ZSQs I've been making. So, I started cutting them into 2 inch strips and then I thought, "Hmmm, I'll sew these strips together." And I really like how it turned out, so it is officially my first quilt top.

BUT, I'm scared to do anything else to it. I'm avoiding it...it is paralyzing! It is so pretty how it is...what if I mess it up when I try to back it and quilt it and bind it?? I've never done it and I'm am SO scared. Silly? Perhaps... I'll keep you updated! ~ @my

Amy, do it! All knowledge is good knowledge. And remember how nervous you were about your first ZSQ? And look at you now! You rock!

I've been talking about how to start quilting on my blog - check it out - www.rachelcox.blogspot.com - long before Mountain Baby Blankets started.

It really is easy. If you have any questions, email me! I'll help as best I can via email, lol!
