I want to learn to quilt. I have tons of scraps. My youngest daughter has pretty much outgrown her baby blanket. You can see where this is going.
I carefully picked out complimentary fabrics. I carefully(ish) cut out a bunch of 5″ squares (the quilting ruler keeps sliding! Arg!) and I carefully(ish) sewed them all together. I sew clothes all the time. Sewing squares? Easy!
Well, it turned out here…
But here? Well, I think something went wrong. Why are the squares not lining up properly?!
I guess carefully(ish) does not cut it in quilting.
Even with its crooked lines, it looks pretty. I still have a lot of work to do on this quilt. It may be a while before it’s done. Too many projects on the go at once – as usual. Stay tuned though – I’ll be sure to post pictures when it’s finished.
Have you made a quilt before? How did it go? Care to share some great tips with me?
