Cotton fabrics, batting, and thread
What was your inspiration?
My wonderful boss was having her first baby and so I decided to make her my first quilt! I used the Practical Guide to Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartmen extensively.
What are you most proud of?
This is my first quilt and really my first time extensively using a sewing machine, so it was a lot of firsts for me!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This project took me a while to complete but it was good to take it slow and get a feel for each step. I really focused on each step in the project--picking fabrics, cutting, piecing, arranging, quilting--without trying to jump ahead (my crafting downfall :))
I also just kept reminding myself I was giving it to a baby and she wouldn't be able to tell if it was perfect... don't fret too much!
