Today I'm excited to feature.... my very first, finished quilted project!
It's hard not to catch the quilting bug when you are working in a fabric store every week.
I had sewn some clothes and bags before, but never tried a quilt. Good thing I work at Pink Castle Fabrics and I live almost next door to Lynn of The Little Red Hen
(What are tree pants?! It's a square-shaped Christmas tree skirt). Kind of like Christmas quilts that you can set under the tree!
Cutting & piecing this quilt was easy-peasy because I used two of the In From the Cold charm packs
for the square star background. The charm squares are a little bigger than the pattern asks for
and I had to make other adjustments for that, but really --- it just means you have more surface area on which to place presents under your tree, and there can't be anything wrong with that.
I was able to piece this quilt together myself, but it wouldn't look anything like a quilt if it weren't for Lynn
's help and teaching and my boyfriend finishing the straight-line quilting for me when I got too frustrated. Oh, P.S. they both took all the photos for this post as well, because I had to go out of town. They're such helpers!
