quilt accomplished

My quilt is finally finished and I'm SO happy with how it turned out. Not bad for my first attempt!

I based my fabric selection off of one fat quarter and despite the mix match of patterns and colours they all fit together perfectly (at least I think so). There is something very nostalgic about one or two of the fabric choices and it makes me want to curl up with it on my lap. Next time I think I'll use a patterned fabric for the sashing, just for fun.

If you are interested in trying a nine patch quilt yourself I highly recommend the class at the workroom, if you're not into sewing/quilting but want one, drop me a line and commission one from me.

Here is a close up of my fave patch:

Stay tuned for more of my quilting adventures!

Found your blog by accident. Love it! I learned how to sew and knit within the last few years as well. I also completed my first quilt early this month. It was a lot of work but worth it. I’m pretty excited with my upcoming quilt projects. The “I Spy” quilt looks like it will be a great project.

Thanks Jan! I’d never heard of an “I Spy” quilt, but I just looked it up and what a cute idea! I am already hooked on quilting…

Great first quilt. You will soon be hooked. Why don’t you try an “I Spy” quilt for new babe? I have some squares I can give you.
