After one and a half years, I finally finished my very first quilt!!!! I cant believe this little blanket took me so long… It did remained in my UFO pile for almost a year before it saw the light again. I was kind of going off a book and couldn’t understand what it was talking about, so I just put it away. I was very fortunate to have met Phoebe after moving to San Diego. It’s all because of her, that I could continue working on this quilt, and finally completing it.
Pattern: Something I made up myself
Fabric: Assorted fabrics found in store
Size: 41” x 56”
Beginning Date: 07-10-2008
Completion Date: 03-06-2010
This little blanket is not perfect. The lines are crooked,the spacing is uneven, and threads showing everywhere it shouldn’t be. But I’m still very proud of it, because it is my very first quilt, and I put a lot of work into it.
I think it turned out pretty nice in the end, just don’t look close…. ;-)
It is now sitting on my sofa, and will accompany me when I watch TV and stitch.
Now that I learned how to properly make a quilt, I feel like making another one. Just like Phoebe said, this is a path of no return!!!!
Thank you for all your warm comments on my Friendship Sampler. I’m currently working on my Mary Wigham again. The progress is slow, because work has picked up again. I might not have much to show for a while, but I will check in often. May you all have a wonderful day~~
