My first ever quilt!!!
I've been interested in quilting in these days and have learned many patterns. I just love it! It turned out that quilting is so fun and interesting hobby! I remember we used to have two small cushions at home, which were made by my grandmother a very long time ago! The patchwork border was amazing! They were so beautiful and original! My sister has them now. I tried to sew my own quilt. I bought one beautiful, colorful fabric and plain white one.
I didn't have all of the needed tools, but somehow, I figured out:)At the beginning, I wasn't able to make perfect same squares out of that strips, but then after a few tries, I made it.
Still, experienced quilters will see my faults, but for the person who doesn't know anything about quilting (precisely my husband:)) it is a perfect sewn quilt:)
For me, it is my first experience and I made it specially for my cuty one, so it is made with love-that is important:)
During sewing process, I had some problems with it, especially when I was sewing trough and across the "sandwich", so I decided to sew it up by hands and then run through with sewing machine.
Finally, I bind my quilt with a white fabric.
At the end, I had so many left over pieces, that I decided to make a pillow out of them.
