I've been quilting for over 12 years now and have completed a lot of different projects. I wish that I could quilt and sew more often but things like work get in the way. I learned to quilt from a friend. During my February break one year, she taught me to quilt. My very first project was the Tinkerbell quilt, which I made for my sister for her birthday. We worked all week on that quilt. She even taught me how to free motion stitch. It took us 2 days, working together, just to stitch Tinkerbell into the quilt. It was worth it in the end. From when we went to the store, spending hours trying to pick just the right fabrics, to piecing all the fabrics together, to stitching Tinkerbell in, I enjoyed every minute and became hooked on quilting.View all patterns by designer (5) »
The Tinkerbell quilt was my first quilt! My friend and I worked on the pattern and even stitched Tinkerbell into the quilt. I used chalk and an overhead and drew Tinkerbell onto the back of the quilt and then stitched over the lines. It took over 16 hours to do but I love it! The actual pattern is easy and the colors I put together look great. I like how the colors accent the picture piece of fabric.
There are 3 different versions of the same base pattern pictured above.
