My First Quilt

My mom came to stay with me last week whilst Sir Luke was in Chicago on a gig. We had SO much fun and she taught me how to quilt while she was here. She started me on a harder piece but we only did the center block so I'd have time to do it from beginning to end under her supervision.

You can click on the photo to see it larger. I really love how it turned out and am pretty proud of myself. It takes a lot of concentration and cutting pieces perfectly is definitely the key to success. I think I could do it again without my mom.

She got me this great Amy Butler Disc that has a bunch of patterns on it including a floor cushion I plan on making and a simpler quilt. I think I want to stipple the entire thing (see second picture). I'll definitely be going back to Quiltique where we found a bunch of amazing fabric. It's a money pit in there. Mmm hmm.
