Baby Quilt Donation #2

For the past 3 months I have been dealing with a frozen shoulder
and all of the pain that goes along with it.
I could sew at my sewing machine while standing in front of it,
but not sitting.
However, I could do very little machine quilting because
it required more movement of my shoulder and arm.

After 2 months of physical therapy my pain is almost gone!

I am now able to do some machine quilting and I had a back log
of things that needed to be quilted.

This weekend I finished another baby quilt for
donation to my church.

The machine quilting isn't wonderful,
but it's finished.
I've gotten a bit rusty from not having done it for a while.
(Not that I was very good at it to begin with! :D)

This quilt was made with a jelly roll....
a poorly cut jelly roll.

I saw the design on Pinterest and kind for did my own thing with it.

I've had this fabric in my stash,
patiently waiting for its turn to be used.
It's the perfect backing for this quilt

Another quilt finished and checked off of my list!

Happy Quilting!

Your quilt turned out great. Glad your shoulder is doing better. Don't they know that quilting is therapy. Oh, maybe only therapy for the soul.

I'm so glad you are getting some relief from the shoulder pain. Be careful. ;)
That quilt is adorable and someone is going to love it and never care about the quilting or the wonky cuts. Perfect backing fabric. Isn't it fun finding it in the stash.

That has to be so frustrating for you, but I am glad you are getting some relief....finally. Will you have to do things differently once it is healed to avoid it happening again?

Your quilt is beautiful.

I'm thinking about how much you have created, despite the pain of a frozen shoulder. You are amazing Ramona! I am so glad that the PT has helped you feel a whole lot better. And I hope your shoulder stays fixed this time.
This is a really sweet quilt and will be much loved I am sure!

I love your sweet baby quilt. What a lucky baby to receive that! Glad your shoulder is feeling better and you're able to quilt again.

The quilt is so cute and the quilting is beautiful! A frozen shoulder is definitely worse than a frozen hip, you have my sympathies.
