My First Quilt

by Josée

In February and March I took a beginners quilting class. I was the only one there under retirement age and the only one that had never actually quilted before. I almost finished my small quilt at the last session but the binding still had to be sewn. I am proud to say that I’ve finished it today!

I learned a lot of things along the way. Like how… assembling a quilting foot on the sewing machine can be somewhat tricky, quilting with a bad sinus cold isn’t the best for precision and making sure you’ve quilted all your lines before returning the borrowed quilting thread to the teacher is very wise.

What can I say though, I’m hooked! I’m already making plans for a few projects… some hotplates, placements, and a quilt made out of men’s dress shirts, those kind of things.

Oh my gosh!!! It's sooo pretty and perfect. I can never sew straight. Please let me know if you have a trick for that.
