My First Quilt

First, a major lesson learned. Well actually there were lots of lessons. But the one that sticks with me is this. When they, (whoever 'they' may be), say a quilt can be made in one weekend, they are actually just describing the piecing of the top. By the end of the weekend you will not have a complete quilt. I guess that's obvious to most folks. But I certainly didn't know that.

But after a couple long weekends I am done.

I love my quilt. It's by no means perfect - very far from it, in fact. But with it's first wash, it's nice and soft and wrinkly. And those wrinkles help to hide some of the mistakes.

Even with the mistakes, I've become a quilting addict!
