My First Patchwork Quilt



I finished my first quilt!


I these are the fabrics I chose.

 I decided to stick with a basic square design.  After cutting them out I laid them out on the floor in a pattern that I was happy with.

And then sewed all the squares together.


I added a layer of of batting, and then added another layer of floral fabric for the back.

I made my own bias for the edging from the backing fabric. 

 It's super light but really soft and cozy. 


Although it's not perfectly square and has a few sewing lumps and bumps, I think it turned out great for a first attempt.
 

 What do you think?

  2. I'm so loving your quilt and the colors are so pretty. It will look cheery in your room all the time with it. I've never made a quilt and I have no excuse, I even have my Mother's quilt rack to make one on. If I could do half as well as you did I'd be happy. You should be very proud of yourself. Enjoy your hard work.

  6. Your quilt is beautiful and the colours are so lovely. I love quilting and while I am not an expert, your first attempt looks great. It goes so well with the peek of colour from that table.
