Half Square Triangle Baby Quilt

I was digging through some old photos on my computer today and found these. These are the only photos I have of the 2nd quilt I ever made. (Note to self: take more photos.) It was a gift for my cousin's baby shower -- girl baby but trying not to be overly babyish and I used that little dragonfly print on the navy for her dragonfly themed nursery.

My points matched terribly and I totally butchered the binding. Like seriously there was batting sticking out in places where I didn't trim it close enough because I desperately needed new/better scissors. This was also the last quilt I made on my 1970s Singer Touch and Sew (aka Touch and Swear) that my grandmother gave me when she got her Bernina.

Everything you make will always be a learning experience and an opportunity to improve your skills. Don't let your lack of experience keep you from trying things. Practice makes perfect.
