Doing some catching up... yesterday was "Migraine Monday" instead of my normal "Muffin Tin Monday". In fact, it should have been "Migraine 3-Day Weekend", but that doesn't sound as catchy. Again, I apologize for the lack of blog posts and follow up comments. I am not spending as much time on the computer since I don't want my migraine to return. But I did want to share this little tidbit with you... So, since I'm pretty sure my sister doesn't check out my blog very often, I thought it would be pretty safe to show this to all my bloggy friends. I recently finished my first quilt!
I started this quilt in July and took my time completing it. It is for my niece for Christmas. Her bedroom is decorated in pink and green colors. Most of the pinks and some of the yellows I used were scrap fabric my mom gave me from her stash. I got some extra yellows, pinks and greens to add to it. I figured the squares would be the easiest pattern for a starter quilt.
I did a simple backing. I made it bigger than the quilt top, then folded it over, pinned it, and sewed it to the top. Although it took some time, it was much easier than I thought it would be... and much faster than crocheting a blanket.
I sewed a letter "E" for her name on the middle square.
And I added a little tag. :)
What do you think?
I also started a cute one for my other niece, and now that I know how to make a quilt, I am thinking of making a bunch more!
