My Quilt of Many Firsts
(Winter Haven, FL, USA)
I found this quilt pattern in a magazine and decided I had to make it.
Went to the quilt shop and discussed it with the owner.
We picked out the fabric and appliqué supplies.
I had never appliquéd before (no. 1 first).
I got it all put together and had no wrinkles or tucks on the back (no. 2 first).
I free motion quilted without the use of stencils (no. 3 first).
I bound it and it went together perfectly and didn't have to take any part apart (no. 4 first).
I was so proud of myself!
