The First Quilt

Some of you may have noticed that I have been…uh…doing some editing on the blog. I want this to be a place of fun and positivity so I went back and marked all my old stuff “private” so that way what I’m presenting to the world is a good vibe.

A nice bonus though is I can re-upload old projects as new content!

This is the first quilt I ever actually finished.

Taking a quick look at my original entry about this guy, I don’t have a ton of info. I know I used a stack of fat quarters that I had long since lost the collection name (if anyone happens to know, I’d appreciate it!).

I was very purposeful with the center squares of the 9-patches to try and highlight an animal or flower. I still really like the black sashing in between the blocks.

I pieced the quilt using my old Brother machine and then halfway through the quilting I ended up getting my Juki which made the quilting go way faster. It was basic stitch in the ditch.

For a while, I hid this quilt in a drawer, upset about the little mistakes. After about a year though, I don’t remember why I didn’t like the quilt! It’s really cute! And I’m still obsessed with the backing fabric (don’t remember the name of that either).

What about you guys? Have any projects that you originally couldn’t bear to look at but now don’t know what you were thinking?
