I wanted to share with you the first quilt I ever made!
I learned a ton about quilting while making this one since I made my fair share of mistakes (or more than my fair share, if you ask me…). If you’re interested in learning to quilt I’d definitely recommend two books that I read: The New Quilting by Machine by Singer and The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Quilting by Laura Ehrlich. I actually used the colour scheme and design of a quilt in the second book for this quilt — I just love that cerulean blue!
Most of the fabrics for this quilt are second-hand, which was a great way to save money and to find some unique fabrics. The backing is a really nice lavender queen-sized bedsheet that I bought from a thrift store. I’ll definitely be doing that again, because it saved me the hassle of piecing together a backing, and it was so much cheaper.
