My first quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The whole thing - the squares are pretty much straight. Some not entirely and there is one areas where I accidently used red stitching on the white section but I think it adds to the charm! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use cheap material and so a test run. Charm packs are not cheap and this can be an expensive hobby if you make mistakes.

What you will need

  • Cotton charm pack
  • cotton backing and some off white material I picked up in a remnants basket. The binding is store bough bias binding

Q&A with MoMoo

Odita asked:
I have the same first quilt, I think we can develope together
MoMoo answered:
I just saw yours. It's lovely. I suspect all my quilts will have this beginners simplicity to them, i think I prefer them like that!
Ruth Hurley asked:
That is a great first quilt. I have been quilting for almost four years and I can finally see my progress. I find that clipping or taping all three layers securely to the table and using lots of safety pins to baste the layers really helps to improve the finished product
MoMoo answered:
I need to try this, as I find getting the backing on very tight difficult.
