For those of you that are visiting from the BQF, WELCOME! I don't have a new quilt to show you this time around (I had good intentions but time ran out on me!). Instead I am featuring the first quilt I ever made (I even did the simple quilting and hand stitched binding!).
I made this quilt for my cousin's first baby, Owen. Being my first quilt, I was very worried about making something that my cousin would like and also use. I wanted it to be special for them. I decided to order some of the bedding that she had picked for the nursery, put my seam ripper to good use and cut it up. I used 2 crib sheets and 1 valance for the squares (big and small). I was able to find some coordinating fabrics for the sashing, binding and backing at my local quilt store.
I truly fell in love with this quilt (despite the many imperfections!). The finished product and especially the process were so rewarding for me. I was officially hooked.
|Even their kitty, Olive, likes it :)|
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you visit again soon.
