My first quilt: Finished
DISAPPEARING NINE PATCH
I made it, my first quilt is completed and given to its new owner, my sister-in-law.
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine I could do this, but I did!!! Set your mind on something and you can achieve almost anything.
This is how it all started back in winter. It has taken me sometime to do, I didn't rush and I did have moments (or weekends) of self doubt, but I went on regardless and made it to the end.
|Laying out the front to measure up the borders and sashing. All the fabric used in the main design is Japanese, I just love Japanese fabric, the colours are so beautiful and rich.|
|Sewing on the binding|
Having the computer and sewing table/machine nearby is very handy. When I needed to watch a youtube clip of how to bind around corners, I could watch the clip, turn my chair and follow the instructions.
|Road testing! Found Ruby asleep on top of the quilt, she seemed very content and comfortable. Before it is packaged up and given to my sister-in-law it will be de-haired and cat free.|
|DONE Not perfect but way better than the very first quilt I made. Onwards and upwards from here!!! I've learnt a lot from this one, and I am bound to learn even more with the next. |
