My mom and I had a blast on Monday at Creative Sewing and at Joanns! Got a few goodies for some sewing projects, and had a yummy lunch. She was so excited to spend time with Reagan (and me, I think... lol). When we were out, I got the fabric to do the binding on my tablecloth quilt. When I got home, I got the fabric washed and my binding strips cut. Then, on Tuesdsay, I worked hard to get the binding done and on and my quilt finished.
Here it is.. my first quilt.
1. Pile o' Fabric
2. Diary of A Quilter
3. Stitched in Color
4. Red Pepper Quilts
5. Fresh Lemons
a. I need to use basting spray because pinning didn't work for me so hot
b. I desperately need a rotary cutter and rotary board because this girl can't cut straight
c. I need to use my walking foot the whole time--I ummm, kinda cheated and used the clear open foot to I could see the fabric better since I sort of free motion quilted
d. how to do binding (because I didn't do it the "right way" with this one but I'm pleased with how it looks nonetheless)
But, all told, not too shabby for my first quilt and it looks amazing as my tablecloth. Especially layered with my Williams and Sonoma table runner. What do yall think?
Take care yall and have a great weekend! :)
