Quilted Blankets

Aside of internet exploring,i have one hobby too that i just can't resist.Quilting is one of my hobby,i started to make quilts last year when my father-in-law gave a me a mother's day present,a high-speed sewing machine.It does a lot of things,like designing & different kinds of stitch.Eversince when i was young i like to sew wether by hand or machine,that's why i always get high grades in home economics during my schooltime,lol.But i don't really have an idea how to make quilts then, & i'm dying to learn how coz they're pretty cool & nice,especially those baby quilt blankets made of flannel fabrics.They're really soft,cuddly,comfortable,& gentle to your skin.Our neighbor accross the street loves to do the sewing too,she's an older lady,& she's been doing different kinds of sewing when she was young,including the quilting.So my dad in law talked to her if she can teach me to the things she likes.First,we went to a fabric store to buy some fabrics that we need & she helped me to pick nice color & nice fabric for me to sew,which i'm going to make my baby a big quilt blanket coz he's getting bigger,his blanket is getting smaller to him.On the next day,i came over to her place & brought my sewing machine & accessories to start the teaching.She told me she was impressed of my eagerness & willingness to learn.I told her that when i was young we used to have a tailoring shop.I't s a long story how we lost the business,but i had seen some of my mom's hired tailors how they cut the fabrics & all that.Well,back to the sewing,I finally finished the very first quilt i made,& i was very happy coz i made it perfect.After that,she taught me so many things, like sewing jammies,table tops & house decorations.Now,i know how to make it on my own.I thanked her for teaching me the steps how to do the sewing & how to make it nice & perfect.
Anyway,here are some of the projects i have made:

My baby's Camouflage

Baby Girl's Blanket
Our Jammies

My Scrap Blanket

This is my boy's blanket
Mine & my boy's jammies



Aren't they nice?And some of my projects,i already gave to my friend's sons & sister's daughter.So far i made 8 quilted blankets,i made some jammies too for my husband ,my baby & for myself.I'ts really a nice feeling when you made something coz you're gonna see it everyday & you're using it.
And i am planning to go to school this summertime for dressmaking to enhance my knowledge about sewing skills.
