My Quilt

Mom and I took our first quilting class today and had a lot of fun. After the girls went to bed, I decided to do a practice run on our homework and thoroughly enjoyed myself. This is just using the scrap fabric we got today, after I finish piecing this square with the scraps, I am going to make the same square using the actual fabric from class. This took me about 3 hours total (sewing by hand) and I am pretty proud for my first attempt at sewing anything. Of course, I still need to iron all the pieces and do the edge pieces, but still, I think it's pretty decent.


  1. Congrats! Quilting is so rewarding. I'm so glad that you and Mom are able to do that. And by hand no less! I'm impressed. I've only done machine quilting.

    Can't wait to see more. Blogging Rocks!

  2. Awesome! I've always thought I would love quilting because of the math involved. I can't wait to see your whole quilt after you are finished.
