A Sewing Hubby

My husband does a little upholstery on the side so he has loads of sewing machines (hobby also was vintage singer machines) and knows very well how to sew. He doesn't like to quilt but once in awhile will do something.

His grandaughter is expecting a baby girl the first week in January. I told him that I would quilt and bind the quilt if he would piece it. I had some pastel bear fabric that had been hanging around for a couple of years that would be good for the quilt. He used the Warm Wishes/Couch Potato pattern I had made a couple of quilts out of recently and finished the piecing the other night.

I have backing fabric ready to go in the wash for the quilt so hope to maybe get it on the frame next week.

I think he did a great job piecing this.

WOW I am impressed for your husband.

I think the quilt will be extra special to the baby since you both worked on it. That bear fabric was in my stash once, too. I made a charity quilt from it. Nice work by DH.
