RisaAnn’s First Quilt

What a fun ride that was!  I learned a lot about seams, lining up corners, basting and binding.  I had it on my list for the year “sew a quilt”.  I found the perfect pattern, step-by-step instructions with pictures!

My daughter picked out the fabric and I got started.  Doing the quilt was like putting a puzzle together, so many steps fit together to make the finished quilt.  I did not take a picture of every step but they went something like this: iron fabric, cut fabric, sew fabric into blocks, sew 5 blocks into a row, sew 5 rows into a quilt topper, iron the backing fabric, sew backing fabric, make a quilt sandwich, sew the quilt sandwich, and finally complete the binding.

Here both pieces are laid out before the quilt sandwich is made.

Lots of fun…so much fun that I am onto my next one and I have the material ready to go for the third one.  You see, I have four little ones and once the oldest got a quilt they all have to have one now!
