1  Black Flag quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Crystal Mess on: August 28, 2012 08:04:51 PM
I made this for a friend's birthday. She loved it. I loved it...err...after it was completed.

The top, made from sheets and the border was done with thrifted fabric


the back, made from old sheets

2  My first quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Crystal Mess on: February 19, 2012 08:00:12 PM
I decided that I would made a quilt without any former quilt training. I scanned a lot of message boards (especially this one) and some youtube tutorials for all my advice. I probably broke every rule along the way, but I like how it turned out.

This was my first go at putting it together


But then I wanted more...


Here is where I ended up (Front...obviously)


And this is the back



It's also worth mentioning that I didn't want to spend a lot of money on my first quilt in the event that it turned out FUBAR, so instead, I used all thrifted fabric for the top and the black backing is a $5 sheet. Total, this was a $15 quilt, tops.

You're all so talented and I hope to eventually make quilts half as awesome as those I've seen here.
