I finished my first quilt!!! Well, it was a joint effort, but it’s done. 🙂
My quilt guild regularly has challenges to get people excited about making donation quilts. This fall, the challenge was to take 1/2 yard of a novelty fabric and turn it into a quilt. I was a bit intimidated, but when I saw the keroppi fabric I wouldn’t resist.
So I bought a low volume charm pack and started planning. Initially my plan was the fussy cut the frogs and applique them onto the charm squares before sewing them all in rows. After discussing with my quilt guru, Mimi, I decided to alternate the charm squares with some green swirly fabric. I’m so glad I did! I think it turned out super cute. 🙂
My grandmother helped me add the borders and then quilted and bound it for me so that I could turn in a fully completed quilt Then she came with me to my guild meeting last night when I turned it in! So much fun. I almost wish I could keep it! I guess I had better get busy on my next quilt. 🙂
