This is my great nephew Rocket's quilt, Finship. Such a fun quilt!
I learned how to do Invisible Machine Applique on this quilt - I took a class, and decided it was well worth the effort. I've been using invisible machine applique ever since.
I also discovered that quilting is great therapy. My dear Daddy passed away shortly before I started this quilt. The grieving, mourning & depression was somehow made more bearable because I was working on something positive - a beautiful baby quilt, full of life, vibrant with bright happy colors,... for Pappy's first greatgrandson. Rocket arrived just a couple days before his Pappy's birthday. So this quilt has many memories sewn into it.
Yes, quilting it good therapy. And it's MUCH cheaper than a shrink!!
