My First Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I know that there are a lot of mistakes. It was a learning quilt. I fixed what I could and just accepted what i could not. I am proud that I saw this project though to completion and I am quite happy with the end result. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Jenny's course was very clearly presented. I was a complete beginner, but I was able to make a quilt. I think that says a lot.

What you will need

  • I used Nature Scapes charm packs (4) by Benartex for the top with a flannel backing.

maggiesc asked:
Wow, I haven't had the nerve to start one yet, did you layer and quilt yourself or send it out, and what color thread did you quilt with considering all the colors?
GrannyO answered:
i did quilt it myself. I used a light grey thread that blended in pretty well.
