Carmilla's Quilt

I made this in 2 weeks for Isabelle’s baby and at the end, I was not too sure about the combination of pinks and purples. Fortunately for me, she loves purple and loved the quilt.

Sarmi hand quilted some of the panels while I did the others - that helped to speed up the process. One thing I can never do is machine quilt. I took a class but I never know what tension to set my sewing machine to and the thread snaps most of the time. Besides, I prefer hand work, there is something very therapeutic about sitting in front of the TV and quilting at the same time.
