It's remarkably easy! Trying out the quilting foot on my new-to-me Bernina. The unmarked spiral was only a bit hard to see, so drew feathers and a star; only glitch was that I didn't lower the feed dogs and so took larger stitches on one leg of the star.
I'd been avoiding it, hearing everyone talk about how hard it is, and especially as I am no good at embroidery, but it's really not hard at all!
Now just to baste the windy days quilt and get started!

(Eh, giving up on rotating the photos, time to get this out of my drafts folder! Turn your head and it looks fine!)

This was originally my Ravellennic Games project, but I did the back first, the needles were too small, and I had to tear it out, so I lost steam. I finally finished it a week or two ago. It's remarkably hard to get good shots of a baby with a cell phone camera... and I have to find time to get the pictures off of the good camera if I want to show you those!

For what it's worth, the size 6-12 and 12-18 month blouses can easily be cut from 2/3 yard each, and possibly less, in case you were wondering...as the pattern says it's one yard for all sizes 6 months to 4T! The remnant bin can still be your friend for both blouse and skirt.

The corners are from the same yellow as the back; not sure about binding yet, but may just turn the back forward...might make an interesting effect with the matching corners? But quilting comes first - haven't decided about that yet either (style or color)!
