Square in Square Bright Quilt

Always walk through life as if you have something new to learn and you will. 
 ~Vernon Howard



I finished my 2nd quilt this month! yay!! it's something that I was afraid to do. I can't imagine how to quilt in my home sewing machine. I watched lots of you tube tutorial and became more scared ..LOL. Then I just started doing it. And by my second quilt, I can say I manage well, no wonky stitches at the back.

I call this happy quilt because of the colors. I thought I will make a baby quilt with the fabric but ended up make another single quilt. The size is 60x70" 

So, here's what I learned:

1. Using this Micro Stitch is really help to hold the quilt together. I won this on one giveaway some 3 years ago !!..



2. Using fleece as a batting is easier than poly-batting, because the fleece doesn't move much/not slippery.




3. I'm rolling  up the sandwich while tacking it. I find this easier and once finish I have a nice roll, ready to quilt. I quilt NOT from the middle like one tutorial I read. I started from the side. Maybe this is not the right way, but I managed fine with this method.



and 

4. scrappy binding is always a choice. It gives a happier look, I guess..;)



So, here's my happy quilt sitting on the swing:D



I used polkadots at the back. It was a bedsheet actually :). It's difficult to find a wider fabric here, so instead I go for bedsheet which works out cheaper and easier plus I'll get a matching pillow covers ;)

One more look :D

Until then....happy sewing
