Big News! This past week I finished my very first ever “real” quilt! So excited! It looks Marvelous in my inexperienced eye. I am so happy and thrilled with it! It was even fun hand sewing the binding around the edge.
I made the binding out of 1.5 yards of extra fabric.
Unprofessional or not, I quilted the majority of my quilt on the floor. Isabella helped me thread the thick parts of the quilt through the machine by gently pulling on the other side while I pushed from mine. ♥
Hand Whip-stitching the binding down.
The finished Product!
It ended up being about 86” x 86” square. When I do a quilt that is not a scrap quilt I will be more concise about the size. I have decided after this venture that I might make a quilt every winter during our “quiet” season. I am just so happy with it! It may be the thing that finally makes me start a hope chest. I don’t really have a place in my room to store a large quilt over the summer. . . hmmm.
