Starting a New Quilting Project

I found this tutorial recently

Cathedral Window Tutorial

Years ago my gran showed me some beautiful examples of cathedral window quilting that she had done; some of them very tiny. They were all perfect and amazed me. I couldn't imagine how she had made them.

As there is a pile of old baby clothes waiting to be quilted, I thought this might be an ideal way to use them.

My first attempt turned out quite well, but I discovered that doing the "window" part with my machine isn't very practical. The stitches turned out very messy and I broke two needles in the process. I think I'll try by hand next time. I like the overall result though.
