What was your inspiration?
My brother passed away unexpectedly a few months ago. This was before his only son and his fiance had their first baby. A baby girl Elizabeth. I thought that I would like to make something for my niece which could be a keepsake from her fathers family.....a quilt. I have never been interested in quilting but I thought I would give it a try. I found it to be a soothing and rewarding experience. I have plans for (2) more quilts. Plans and yes I started my statsh. Laughs!
What are you most proud of?
My four patches are matched perfectly in the centre every one but one. I left it and its not noticeable.
My sashing is NOT good but I have let myself of the hook it is my first quilt.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Watch Jenny's Video's watch her Craftsy.com classes. Start a quilting book for yourself and enjoy.
