I ended up getting machine quilting thread and making sure to oil my machine every 15 minutes of sewing. I also realized that it skipped a lot more when I was sewing over the white. I'm not sure what fabric I used. Are some better to quilt through than others??
I found this cute Bow Peep fabric on the $5 yard cuts rack at a quilt shop nearby. I'm glad to get to use it for a quilt for a little one! May nursery rhymes live on forever.
I really love how it turned out. For the pattern I used Liz's Criss Cross quilt tutorial. But just not quite as many squares. It ended up to be just the right size for a little car seat or dolly quilt. I love the look of this pattern for mixing a bunch of different fabrics.
The timing was just right to enter it into this little contest. Happy Sewing!
