Look What I Made! My First Ever Patchwork Quilt
Those of you who read my blog regularly might remember the 725 little fabric squares I cut out back in August 2011 out of my scrap fabric stash. Well, finally, eighteen months later, after many hours bent over my sewing machine and many many more procrastinating and putting off finishing it, I now have a large double bed size, beautiful, snuggly, cozy quilt! I absolutely love how it turned out, much better than I imagined it would, and it doesn’t even matter that not all the seams match up and there is no fancy quilting on it, it’s mine, it’s finished, and it’s beautiful!
I have the quilting itch now and can’t wait to make another one, I should have enough scraps to make a smaller one for keeping us warm when we’re on the sofa. I am really pleased with this one, and Mr. B really likes it too, so I am truly inspired! I’m also really glad that I managed to make most of it out of scraps, I had to buy the wadding especially, and I bought a flat sheet to use as the backing, but I even made the binding from scraps of fabric. Even though it took me almost 16 months of procrastination and maybe two months of work, it was definitely worth the wait!
