First quilt (pic heavy)

Postby karenandgeorgia » Fri May 20, 2011 8:34 pm

I'm quite pleased with the result as it's the first time I've tried patchwork and quilting. It's a little uneven at the top so I'm going to take off the binding and redo that section (I'm a bit of a perfectionist :roll: )

Planning on making one for my sisters baby due in the autumn :wine:

I used this tutorial http://www.cluckclucksew.com/2010/07/tu ... quilt.html

Learned lots of other bits from other tutorials too :D

Just taken it out the tumble dryer and it looks lovely now it's been washed and dried, all crinkly and cosy :D

Wow I love it.

I am so itching to start quilting.

What do you think the bare minimum extra equipment I would need - I have sewing machine and scissors :giggle:

Ohhhhhh and how long would you say this has taken?

Well done :wine:

I would get a rotary cutter and mat, other than that it was all done on my regular machine.

I used cotton/bamboo batting and it has come out really soft :D
