My First Quilt


Here is my first attempt at a quilt. Well, that isn't exactly true. I have a pieced together many quilt blocks in the past but this is my first completed quilt. It is for a baby and fairly small. I had some "issues" with one of the fabrics I picked so some of the pieces didn't line up. It was frustrating. Either way it isn't perfect but I think it is cute. Now I have been inspired. Maybe I will work on the quilt I have been piecing for years now!

Do you use a quilting book or do it all "freehand"?

It's very pretty! What lovely shades of blue!
I learned a little trick recently that might help you next time when trying to get your seams to line up.
When you pin, stick your pin THROUGH the seam. I mean, right where the stitching is on both pieces. You'll have perfectly lined up blocks every time!
