2674  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Twilight quilt - my first quilt on: December 20, 2009 10:13:06 PM
I got my 47yr old mom hooked on Twilight back during the fall and she now has a thing for Edward so I decided to make an Edward throw for her. It is going to be her Christmas present and I really hope she likes it. I know it isn't perfect but I tried.  Cheesy I have always admired the time and effort that you quilters put into the quilts but now I have even more after making my first.

I didn't realize how hard making it was going to be. It is 39"x39", I thought I bought enough fabric to make a larger one but I didn't. Then I had to decide on a pattern to make the fabric that I had work. That was so nerve racking for me and I almost gave up before I could even get started. But I got it figured out. I used some quilts I saw on etsy and google search for inspiration. I wanted a different style but I had to go with what would work.

For some odd reason I ironed on the picture of Edward onto a separate piece than the black around him and then "log cabined" around him instead of ironing it directly to a large black square.  Roll Eyes

The quotes were ironed directly on the fabric and then zigzagged around, which was a lot easier.  Cheesy They are "And so the lion fell in love with the lamb"; "Be Safe"; "You are my life now", and "You are exactly my brand of heroin". After I finished them I wanted to add more  but I didn't have enough iron on transfers to do it. Sad I think I need to iron the edges of the quilt a little to get them to lay flat a little more but overall I am pleased with it.

I am getting ready to finish up my first quilt. I am not using binding as I kind of bought the material and started working on it before I learned much about quilting.  Embarrassed I am going to stitch and flip but I am not sure if I should sew the batting with the edges or wait and stitch it with the top after I flip it. I hope that makes sense.

Thanks for the help. I went ahead and ordered the broadcloth last night. It was on sale for $1.19-$1.79 a yard and I didn't want to miss it. Hopefully it will look okay. It is going to be my first one so I'm not sure how it is going to turn out anyway.  Cheesy I making solid black curtains and they are mainly for decorative purposes so I think that will work.

I need some fabric help please. I am making a quilt and some curtains. Would it be okay to use broadcloth for this, it is 65% cotton/35% polyester? I am also planning on using printed iron on pictures on the quilt, would that work on broadcloth? I know nothing about fabric types.  Embarrassed

Another awesome afghan! I really admired your patience and skill to do these. Could you tell me about how much yarn it takes to make one?
