Finito!

I am pleased to say that (after much hard work, learning as I went and a flare for being scrappy) I have finished sewing my first quilt. It is a baby quilt. You ask for what baby? Well, although we do not technically have any "babies" in our home anymore, it will simple be a quilt for cuddling for my kids.
I will not point out my mistakes (I have been told never to do this when displaying something for someone). I will instead only say that I LEARNED WHAT I WILL DO DIFFERENTLY FOR THE NEXT QUILT.

Not only was this my first quilt, but it was also my first sewing project. I am talking I didn't even know how to thread my sister's sewing machine (thank you Bethany!). I was clueless about seams and bobbins and pedals- all of it. I can say that the seam ripper and I became very close during this project.


But in the end, I am very happy with my work. Now what will I sew next...

Very Well Done. It is a beautiful quilt and you really should be proud of yourself. It's hard to believe that it's your first project!

Yes Nathalie... I would be happy to share the tutorial that I used to make this baby quilt with you! It does make for a very nice piece. As far as an heirloom... maybe the next one would be more up to par for passing down!!!
