hello all....i am pretty new to quilting and still learning some things about sewing....so here is some pics of my 1st quilt top....i did get this idea from i think it was a quiltmaker past issue thing i found....the pics are not that great but here it is tell me what you think, and like i said i still have to do the backing and binding and all that crap...lol... oh and i am making this for my dad for christmas i tried to pick out some manly colors which was hard considering i am very girly....
and here is a closeup of the some of the fabric i used...
ok i am now just getting around to posting the completed pics...(been so busy working on other christmas gifts)...so here it is (im hiding behind it here)
i ended up doing different decorative stitches on the seamlines..
and i did a little embroidery on it to add something extra this is on all 4 corners
and this is in all the bigger rectangles throughout the quilt
and this shows the backing along with a little bit of the binding
i started out handsewing the binding on ( but i would prolly still be working on that...lol) but the i decided to just do decorative stitching on that too!!! and it turned out looking good (i think)
