Hi, quilters! I'm working on my first quilt. Here's a little story behind it: This summer, I found a half finished quilt sitting in my grandma's barn and thought it was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen. So I asked my dad about it and he said that my great great grandma started making it back in the 1960's but didn't finish it for some reason. I think she died or something.
I thought it would be nice to honor her by finishing it. So I have been working on it whenever possible and here are the in progress pictures. I aim to finish this over my winter break next month.
And oh yeah, I'm definitely going to make more. I'm hooked. It's relaxing to sew quilts, mirite?
It's meditative. And for some reason the colors are all wonky-they look a lot better in real life.
Some of the pieces lain out before being sewn together.
Pieces cut out and arranged on the sewn together quilt top.
Obligatory artsy shot.

Closeup of the back material. It's a flat sheet I didn't want to waste.
I love the vintage fabrics in this quilt-I think Grandma would be proud.
