I made my first quilt! So my mom got me a sewing machine for my birthday in mid February. It was a total surprise but I was very excited about it. Because sewing is one of the crafts that I have never dived into. I was nervous to dive into it because I know absolutely nothing about sewing and sewing machines! Like zero. So I spent a lot of time on Youtube and even Googleing what certain terms where like bobbin? haha. I was trying to use my instruction manual to just set things up and it was so hard to do anything because I had no idea what the language was. But I learned and the more I practiced it, I know I will get better and better. I am excited of the progress I have already made.
this one seemed simple enough. The main reason I did this one was because I didn't want to do squares because I was worried that it might not line up perfectly because I was so new at sewing. I chose Easter prints that way I can pull the quilt out every spring and enjoy my first quilt! I like holiday themed stuff so this was fun. It was also really fun to pick out patterns that went together. I wish someone I knew was having a baby so I could make them a baby quilt.
this video all the way through and re-watched certain parts over and over to get started with my first quilt because like I said I really didn't know where to start. It was really helpful for doing the strips for the binding and then the binding itself.
It should also be noted that this is not a tutorial of any kind but just me sharing something I made that I am proud of! Have a wonderful Tuesday.
