Because Two People Fell in Love

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This is my first quilt. I'm proud of the color combinations and the fact that we use it every summer. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with a smaller quilt! My quilt turned out to be a king size quilt (I made a rookie mistake in cutting--adding an 1/4" to each square) and it was a bit daunting when it came time to finishing it. So much so that I delayed finishing it by 6 months.

What you will need

  • Reproduction 1930s fabrics
  • new & vintage fabrics (some of the latter from a second-hand shop!)
  • polyester batting
  • and a bed sheet.

Good job on your first quilt. I hid mine, but still have it.

I remember seeing it! Got to keep it nonetheless.
