Randi posted about her first quilts. I love seeing peoples first quilts. I thought I might post mine. Be warned. It is BAD!
I always wanted to make a quilt. Living where I do, I see many beautiful Amish made quilts. I knew I would never pay for one though. I have ALWAYS been a do-it-yourselfer. I bought a book from Walmart, some fabric and got started. I had no idea what I was doing. I paid no attention to seam allowance, I had to use templates, which I cut carelessly, I had no rotary cutter. I used scissors, cut the sashing that way too. Interestingly though, i mitered the corners and border. Weird. I think It is the only quilt I've ever done that way. It has no binding as I used the birthing method instead. I started to machine quilt it and then stopped. My machine had horrible tension and I didn't know how to adjust anything. Oh how we learn :)
I really can't believe I'm posting this funky thang!!!!
