2 years ago I decided to make my first quilt – blanket for a bed.
I headed to some 3 second-hand shops and picked out a pile of greenish cloths that I would never wear myself. I did not know much of the practics of quilting and patchworking, just cut out squares, and tried to put them together in a nice piece. The work was approached some four times while it was finished April this year and after finishing I could not stop watching at it :) It might be that for quilting pros this piece is nothing special, but for me – most cumbersome and rewarding project ever made.
I tried to add interfacing and lining as well as professional as possible and I can say for sure, the other side of a blanket looks as good as the front side.
Different kind of fabrics – cotton, silk, polyester.
