Alec's quilt

Some long time friends are having thier 1st baby!  WAHOO!
Here is the quilt that I made for him:
It's a zig zag.  I know, you're shocked!

Pieced back & I used small corduroy-it was great!

And this is my new quilting friend.  I finally bought a walking foot.
I only have 1 question:  Why?

Why did it take me sooo long to buy one??
Well I have one now so I guess it does not matter :)

Thanks for looking!


  1. so cute Amy!! And I agree with you, I had never used a walking foot until about a year ago, it is amazing how much better it sews all those layers!

  2. I love my walking foot too! My BFF when I'm quilting straight lines!! And your quilt is so cute - are those flannel prints in the zigzags? If so, what did you use for your solid?

  3. What a gorgeous quilt!!!! Of course, I may be a bit biased as you worked so hard on it for our baby!!!!! Alec is going to love it and we truly appreciate you making it for us - you're the best!!!!! I love, love, love the monkeys and the corduroy is so awesome, you are a talent!

    Have a great day,


So~tell me what you think! I really want to know :)
