My First Quilts...
Ok, well kind of anyway. They are baby doll sized for Macy and Kylie for Christmas but I figured it was better to learn how to cut, piece, baste, quilt and bind on mini versions that I won't stress about if they aren't perfect. And they aren't even close, but I am proud of my first two attempts at quilt making. I learned a lot and now I feel confident that I could attempt bigger things in the not to distant future. They are actually much straighter and neater than they appear in the pictures, I guess I just hadn't laid them down very neatly. And thanks to lacy for lending me her cutter and a board from her store! I will get them back to you soon, I promise!
I am pretty proud of myself and I am excited to try my next project. Justin will be flying out of Kenai for the next two days so I will be able to work on fun things all evening without feeling guilty because I am neglecting him.
