My first quilt!

My first quilt!

I finally finished my first quilt! This is under lock because I just mailed it to Mark’s mom – it is an early Christmas gift! She just bought a house and it was designed to go in the living room on her new loveseat. I can’t wait to see what she thinks of it!

It is 67” X 67” finished. I know, it doesn’t LOOK square, but it is. It has cotton batting and is very warm!

Enjoy!


Full quilt!


Artsy Pose!

Holy crap, that must've taken forever. Very nice work.

Seriously, wow.

*blush* thank you!

It didn't take that long. I bought fabric in August, and started mid-September. There is a trick to Bargello quilts that makes them go really fast. I swear I didn't individually piece each little square (that would be way beyond my patience)!

Thank you again! I was really worried since I hadn't made a quilt before that I'd screw it up or something. ^____^ <3

Sweeeeeeeet! Yours came out amazing!! I'm sure she will love it. Nice job! Like making Bargellos then?

Your tiniest pieces must've been hard to sew. Those were always the worst.

I am totally addicted to bargellos.

Actually, it was a little fussy but not really that bad to sew! ^__^

Very very nice! I love the color choices and how it appears to curve. Good job!

I started a quilt years ago. HA. But I refuse to rush. It is to replace the first one I made for husband, that I was in such a hurry that now all the seams are pulling apart. He has been very patient.
