Wow, where do I start? I found blogs when googling questions about quilting. Now I am in love, maybe some would say addicted. I have even found pinterest...love it! There are some amazing quilters out there and I am excited that they are so kind to share their love for what they do. I follow some and hopefully will get some to follow me someday. Thank you for all your inspirations!
So here I am...with my own blog, to talk about my quilts (ok, I admit, I only have one - so far), my scrappin', and maybe even a little more.
Back to the quilt. Finished the binding on Sunday and have to sign it still. I think I am going to embroider that. I actually found the rotary cutting fairly easy. I was to afraid to cut more than one layer at a time but I am sure that will come. Piecing it together was a cinch. I love sewing on my new machine that I bought myself on Black Friday. Even found the sewing more satisfying than my scrapbooking because I could see much more progress then I am use to seeing. The rest is when I got scared, and had to google all sorts of questions. Finally got the nerve to tackle it, and the time when Eric (that's the hubby) could watch the kiddos. Made a few mistakes, and learned a lot along the way, but made it through.
So, wanna see it? Here it is...
This is my first block ever... I was so excited.
And here is the rest of them...
I couldn't believe that I had to go and cut them all into triangles after. But I did...and it wasn't all that bad.
The quilt sandwich however, well that was intimidating. But I figured it out. Love spray adhesive by the way! But forgot to take pictures. Then I went back and forth with how to quilt it, meander or straight lines. And after days of debating with myself, Eric suggested I just do straight lines to make it easier for myself. He was so right.
So there is it...my first quilting project. As soon as I sign it I will post pics of the finished quilt. And maybe even a picture of the beautiful little girl it is for (as long as it is ok with her Mom and Dad).
