Ok, since I'm dying to get my Featherweight back from being fixed so I can make a quilt (!!), I decided I need to do this "My First Quilt" thing that Camille and Carrie are doing. But I have a caveat, and I hope it doesn't disqualify me. I haven't finished quilting some of the quilts. :( You see, I hand quilt. Which means it takes forever. And I have the attention span of a fly. Soooooo, I have lots of half quilted quilts. My first quilt, for example, is about half quilted.
Can you tell it's from the 80s? Ugh! I'd forgotten about that bright pink! Eww! I decided to quilt it in an all over fan pattern, which of course takes forever. And guess what? It's only half quilted! But the quilted parts look pretty!
Now I'll show you my last quilt that is actually finished. It's a Tumbling Blocks. I love English paper piecing. And this was MY quilt! I got to keep it! lol!
I even made the edges all funky.
Now I have to show you my last quilt -- the last quilt which isn't all quilted yet. Don't look at the date -- it's embarrassing. It's a Baltimore Album.
I even did a square with some penmanship. No, I can't really write like that -- copied it from a book.
Again, I want to quilt it pretty densely, which is why I'm taking so long to hand quilt it. And also, there's this thing called cross stitching which has totally distracted me from quilting lately. But you can sort of see the idea behind the quilting.
So Camille and Carrie, do I still count? I hope so! I couldn't remember what my first quilt was that was actually finished, just the one that's still being quilted. :D Sorry!
Now I just hope my Featherweight comes home in working condition -- and I can finally make a quilt top! I've just recently noticed the whole new thing (that isn't that new) going on in the quilt world -- besides fat quarters, there are jelly rolls, honey buns, all sorts of cool precuts! My only problem is how to find the time to stitch as much as I usually do and also make a quilt? :D :D
Have a great weekend, everyone!
