My first quilt

While I was up cleaning my daughters room this morning, I found this stuffed under her bed.  She must have found it shoved in some deep dark closet somewhere and pulled it out.  It made me laugh in a funny/embarrassed kind of way.  My first quilt!  Wow. Check out all those awesome corners. (Ha!) I didn’t even know how to bind.  So, I rolled the backing around to the front.  My back must have been too small since it looks like I cut the top horribly crooked to make it fit.  Again. Wow.  Oh well, good to keep it around to see how far I’ve come.

It’s framed perfectly by my lovely (not!) tile floor.

I got the idea from a quilt I saw hanging in a quilt store.  Ric-rac was sewn along all the seams on the quilt, but I couldn’t afford it, so went without.  I wonder how  badly I would have messed that up… Too funny.  Brings back memories though.  What does your first quilt look like?

  1. Haven't looked at your blog forever...very cute stuff going on!
    I still beat you hands down on the first quilt attempts...sorry, mine was MUCH worse!
    Oh and BTW...I too have bound by folding fabric over from the back...makes sense until you try to do it!
