My first quilt!
I just completed my very first quilt top! In April I attended a class at a local quilt store and learned what little I now know about quilting. Since then my mom and my sister-in-law have been great sources of information and have answered all of my quilting related questions. I still need to put the whole "quilt sandwich" together on my first quilt and I'm hoping my mom, who is a super quilter, will be able to help me with that this weekend when we go visit. Picking out the fabric and putting the quilt top together was so much fun and I think I've actually gotten a little hooked on quilting. I even have my google reader set up to check several different quilt blogs (thanks, Katie!). I tend to lead more toward liking the non-traditional and improvisational styles of quilting. Anyway, here are a few pictures of my first quilt top.
I just love this Mary Engelbreit fabric and I'm excited to get the quilt finished in time for the baby!
