Can you believe it?? 😀 LOL
I had it all cut and ready but I couldn’t find a good opportunity to sit and sew. As you know I have 2 toddler helpers and having needles and pins all over the house wasn’t a very good idea with my helpers around. So it took a long time for me to finally make it. Once I started, it was pretty quick. It actually took me about 2 hours from laying it out to finishing the last stitch.
Now, because I was in a hurry to finish everything while my kids were napping, there are tons of mistakes on this quilt. And the experienced quilters among you will notice them right away. 😀 But it’s my first attempt and I’m totally hooked now. I can’t wait to make more and practice. If you have any tips, please do let me know. Or if you know of a good video/instruction website, please let me know 😀
As for this first attempt, I’m sure it will be put to a good use by my helpers. They already spilled some orange juice on it yesterday 😀 haha It will also be good for camping and playing on the grass this summer.
I love your first quilt. It’s something I have always wanted to try but I haven’t gotten around too. I bet the little ones will love it.
Thank you 🙂 I was so excited while making it. I just wanted to see it ready right away haha
It comes with time. One day you will wake up and think: “this is the day I make a quilt”. LOL That’s what happened with me.
Great first quilt, but be careful, it can be addictive! Enjoy quilting. Life is good! Susie
I couldn’t agree more. It’s super addictive. After I finished the big quilt, I had some little pieced left and I made a smaller one right away. Now I have a long list of what I want to make next. LOL
Your first quilt is so adorable! If you’re looking for videos, search Youtube for Missouri Star quilt company…Jenny Doan has a ton of excellent videos. I just finished my first quilt too.
Congrats on your first quilt! 🙂 Thank you for suggesting the videos. I’ll take a look for sure. I’m eager to learn and improve 😀
Btw, feel free to share a picture of your quilt? 😀
It looks great. Can’t see any mistakes myself but as the saying goes: “He who never made a mistake never made anything!”
Thank you. I absolutely agree 😀 I enjoyed making it so I guess that’s what matters 😀 And I’m motivated to make many more. So we’ll see what happens.
Love you quilt. Great job. Those are not errors! They are design elements. I know how addictive quilting can be. I started with a table runner last Oct. and now I am making a 45×60 inch small quilt. lol
I also watch quilting on Youtube and there is some free ones on Craftsy.
Thank you 🙂 Yes, design elements! Exactly! 😀 I’m going to use this one. LOL
But of course Craftsy!! I forgot about it. Thank you for reminding me.
I’ve been thinking about making a table runner too. Good for you continuing to make quilts. It’s amazing when you see a pile of fabric become something so adorable. Then you can’t stop making it. 😀
Congrats on your first of many quilts
Thank you 🙂 I can’t wait to make more 🙂
Nice! Congrats on your first.
Thank you 🙂
Charming! I’ve always admired quilts and the talented folks who make them, but I haven’t yet made the leap from knitting to sewing on a regular basis. Maybe it’s time to dip my toe in.
It is addictive. My knitting projects are falling behind lol
