    Default First quilt

    This is my first quilt. Sewing machines don't like me so it's hand pieced and hand sewn. I learned a lot, made a few mistakes. But I enjoyed the whole process.

    Gosh I would not do it by hand either. But my sewing machine and I have a good relationship.

    This is amazing--all hand pieced! Great job! By the way, getting friendly with the sewing machine might not be the worst friendship you could make, and doing quilt pieces might be a great place to practice. If the machine is balky, you might consider having someone do a professional tune up and you might just find your sewing machine and you could become friends! But good luck and keep quilting, however you end up doing it.

    Its very pretty and as you seem very accomplished at hand piecing you could do some of the really nice but complex paper peiced quilts.
