There can be stitches that aren't knitting

So, we're up to late Sunday afternoon and I haven't knit a stitch all weekend. I have been doing other things including some sewing. a friend of mine had twins, and for the baby shower we sere all sent packets of fabric and requested to make a quilt square. 

I ignored the project for quite a while, because designing sewing scares me. But Jen suggested using a buttonhole stitch to seal the edges, so I didn't have to mess about with folding the edges under, and that worked really well.  I (mainly) managed to both cut and sew in straight lines too! I'm really happy with how mine came out. Everyone made really nice squares - I'll have to pop a photo up here once the quilt is all assembled.
