This is my first attempt at a quilt. I have absolutely no quilting knowledge what-so-ever, so it was a kind of ‘learning by doing’ experience!
I wanted to make something nice for a friend who is about to have her first baby. I made it as unisex as possible as she does’n’t know what she is having and I wanted it to be suitable for a few children any way.
I probably should have chosen an easier pattern. Sewing the L shaped pieces wasn’t as straight forward as I thought it would be, and I only realised this AFTER I had cut out all of my shapes! Got there in the end though.
It is far from perfect, but I am pretty pleased considering it was my first attempt. I definitely felt I was improving with each block I sewed.
Quilting cotton, cotton thread, cotton wadding.
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
