Winter Wonderland Contest 2013

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm thrilled that my first quilt turned out well enough that I'm not embarrassed to give it as a gift. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the Craftsy Piece, Patch, Quilt: Basic Quiltmaking Skills video lessons. I couldn't have done it without that video!!

What you will need

  • 1930s reproduction cotton fabrics
  • batting
  • my mother's 45 yr old sewing machine

Q&A with Bunny Wilson

Bunny Wilson asked:
This is my first quilt made for my grandson who will be 1 yr old Dec 20. I'm excited to be able to give him a warm cuddly quilt for his first birthday.
Bunny Wilson answered:
My second one isn't coming out quite as well, lol. I think it was much easier making a crib sized quilt than the full sized one I'm doing now. Might be time for a new sewing machine with a larger workspace.
