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!

quirky quilts

I think I've discovered my newest obsession - QUILTING! Now don't roll your eyes and lump me in the old maid category, quilting is cool (ha!) and if you use contemporary fabrics you can really create some real beauts.

Last night I started my first quilting class at the workroom and I LOVED it. It's an introduction to quilting so we're making a nine-patch quilt and it should be complete in three sessions. The photo above is my assortment of fabrics that I'll be using. I wanted to use fun colours so L'il E and I can roll around on it at the park this summer.

Stay tuned for the finished product and check out the other classes offered at the workroom. They're all really great!
