My Very first Quilt.

Something that I have always wanted to do was make a Patchwork quilt and when I started sewing again a while back I thought why not have ago. Now I know it wasn't going to be easy and this quilt is for beginners and it wasn't as difficult as I thought it was going to be. The really difficult bit was the actual quilting bit. I decided to go with quick easy, well maybe easy for some, and did it on my machine. Boy was it a task and I did mess up in parts,and I only did sewing in the ditch, but I don't mind, and if I don't mind it doesn't matter, and I know I will hopefully do a better job next time.

The kit is called It Takes Two and is designed by Camille it was on Sale at the Fat Quarter Shop
It was featured in the Dec 10 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.

I also decided that I want to learn to crochet, I can knit but not crochet and that's the next thing to learn to do. I think this is becoming a bit of a bucket list.
