Quilt No. 1 Complete!

June 28, 2009

I had SO MUCH FUN making this quilt! And I almost can’t believe I pulled it off. It came out perfect and I’m so pleased.

I have to say that Oh, Fransson’s tutorials helped me a lot in the making of this quilt, particularly with sandwiching and binding (thank you so much for putting those together!)

I finished the quilt Saturday around noon and had it washed, dried, and all wrapped up a few hours before we had to leave for the wedding, which was beautiful and very fun!

The next quilt I had been planning needs to be made and shipped to Hawaii within two weeks from today.  I’m starting to reconsider this, though, especially when I tried laying out the pieces I had and I didn’t like how it was looking.  The pieces are way too busy and I cut a few of them the wrong size.  I may pick this one up later and send it when I can.

So the actual next quilt I’m going to be focusing on is due in August.  I have one month.  Plenty of time :)

    Very nice! Shows me that it can be done :)
    When you actually did the quilting, did you quilt a certain design or did you follow the quilt blocks?
    Thanks for the links, too– so helpful. One of these days I’ll finish mine!
