Baby shower 2 finished

I always tie quilts I make with yarn. Most people use worsted weight yarn, but I use a baby or sport weight yarn.

I start by making a double length of yarn as long as I can handle without getting too many tangles. I quilt as close to even as I can sewing as much as I can with each continuous piece.

Then my husband helped cut and tie knots, (double square knots I think) since he seems to get them tighter and closer than I do.

I hope the parent’s to be love this quilt as much as I do.

    My mother would tie her quilts too. This one is very lovely – I’m sure the parents-to-be will love it.
