Yesterday, I finally finished a quilt I made for my baby’s nursery. This is my first quilt I’ve ever made all by myself (not counting the one I made with my great-aunt in Utah one year as a teen — where I mainly cut out squares). It’s not my best sewing, but considering my inexperience, I’m really happy with the outcome (here is a little sneak of it). I will share the finished product in the near future. For now, enjoy this week’s newest additions to The Curvy Elle Shop!
