Quilt Making

Over the Christmas break I made a patchwork quilt!

My brand new quilt!

I have always wanted to do this and now I am. This is the first quilt I have made, used entirely from scraps and material already in the house since I didn’t want to buy new fabrics for my first attempt.

This detailing was actually done by machine. For my next quilt I would love to do this by hand in a colour which stands out. I love hand embroidery and would love to become proficient.

Looking at the finished product I can’t believe it started out as some squares when Mum and I put into a pattern we both liked (the hand in the photo is hers).

So what do you all think? I am very proud of this as my first attempt.
