My First Quilt
For some reason I felt compelled to buy a copy of "Quilts and More" magazine at the grocery store the other day. I've always wanted to try quilting but I'm really impatient and don't have a lot of time to quilt. The solution - itty bitty quilts. I found these great little coasters in the magazine. It was sewn by hand using English paper piecing and applique (I did use a machine to do the binding) It took me two evenings to complete. It wouldn't have been my first fabric choice but I had it laying around. But even so, I was pretty happy with the results.
