learning to quilt

My friend Lori came over to sew today. She wanted to make 2 baby quilts for a friend. Lori sews but has never made a quilt. We had such a good time! She had brought some cute baby prints she bought and we cut them into 6 1/2 inch squares (a size that worked well with one of the prints that was divided into squares). Then we dove into y stash and found some solids and polka dots that played nicely with her prints. She laid the patchwork out in a cute scrappy style and we sewed them together as a team. I must say, we're a pretty fine team! Here's Lori's very first quilt top....
She's coming back on Friday so we can sew the second one together. I think she did a terrific job, don't you?

This looks fantastic - I'm going to need one of those lessons soon, but it looks like it will have to be after the first of the year.
