Editing to link this post to the Thursday I Made It Blog Party at Everything Etsy. It's tons of fun to pop over there and see what others have made this week. Why don't you join in?!
I am so excited! I just finished my very first quilt, the one from the On the Road to Spring Quilt-Along (that started back in February). I'm excited that it's done, and I'm excited that I finished something! LOL I'm notorious for starting things and never finishing them, so this is a milestone for me. I loved every phase of making this quilt, from cutting to binding, which is also unusual. The only thing that slowed me down was that free-motion quilting, which I ended up not doing after all; the rest was fun and fairly easy. Here are the pictures of my finished, crinkly-fresh-from-the-dryer, first ever quilt:
Freshly washed and dried!
A closer look at the binding. I was afraid this would be hard, but it wasn't, and the hand-sewing it to the back was very relaxing.
A peek at the back. This blue-and-tan floral was the color inspiration for the quilt - I just love it!
Thanks for looking at my little quilt! I'm very pleased with it, and I'm ready to make another one. I'm trying to decide on a pattern to use for a small quilt for a friend's birthday in a few weeks, and I still want to get ahold of that free-motion quilting. Thanks to Randi at i have to say for the great tutorial and quilt-along! I loved it!
