I'm absolutely delighted to announce that I've finished my very first quilt. The photo really doesn't do the colors justice but I couldn't wait for a perfectly sunny day to take a picture outside.
How long did it take me? Not long! It took a few months to figure out what I needed for materials, where to find things, practice a few techniques, make and recover from a few mistakes and learn how to piece everything together. I am so pleased with the results. It was so much fun to explore a new creative outlet and work through the technical processes on this project. I'm already itching to make another quilt.
This baby-sized quilt is 40 inches square. The fabric on the front was purchased at our local Hobby Lobby and the fabric for the binding and quilt back were from Quiltin' Country, a wonderful fabric store in Killeen, Texas. The folks at Qultin' Country were so friendly and helpful when I stopped in to browse on my drive from Austin to Dallas in January. I am looking forward to ordering more fabric from this store.
Now for pictures of the quilt in progress.
